Most rural communities in the world earn most of their living from agriculture, yet a very low percentage of their land is productively cultivated.

      The rapid rise of agricultural mechanization in Myanmar 1. The rapid rise of agricultural mechanization in Myanmar Ben Belton¹, Mateusz Filipski², Myat Thida Win¹, Xiaobo Zhang² (¹Michigan State University, ²IFPRI) Food Security Policy Project South-South Knowledge Sharing on Agricultural Mechanization IFPRI, CIMMYT, Ethiopian Agricultural Mechanization Forum Addis . Agricultural mechanization was applied to both crop production and livestock production, and often supplemented scientific research from earlier years. These research efforts helped make North Carolina farmers become major producers of many agricultural products. North Carolina is the top producer of pork, turkey, tobacco, and sweet potatoes.

    Description: Agricultural Mechanization and Automation is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.   Consistent with this conjecture, the empirical analysis shows that when agricultural wages rapidly increase, farm size becomes a critical factor to determine mechanization. Thus when real wage rapidly increases and labor shortage becomes serious in rural areas, large farms tend to gain its advantage to mechanize.
