Assessing the Impacts of Technology on Southern Agriculture and Rural Communities: Discussion

Christina H. Gladwin
1988 Southern Journal of Agricultural Economics  
In an excellent analysis, Dr. Ghebremedhin discusses the impacts of technological changes on "small versus large farms, public costs in rural communities, and the future direction of research needs." I cannot but wholeheartedly agree with some of his conclusions; e.g., that "technology has increased agricultural productivity and created new jobs, but it has also displaced persons from their occupations and livelihood."
