Shifting from Green Revolution to environmentally sound policies: technological change in Indonesian rice agriculture

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This study analyses technological change in Indonesian rice agriculture. An analysis of data compiled by the Indonesian Central Bureau of Statistics shows that rice agriculture has undergone technological progress with non-neutral technological change that has been capital and labour saving and chemical intensive. Recent agricultural policy reforms, which include the dissemination and implementation of environmentally friendly technology, however, appear to have been successful in reducing chemical use.
