In Latin America and Africa the growth rate of agricultural employment increased, but in Asia the opposite took place. Causes of differences in agricultural labour productivity growth The findings in the previous section show big differences in overall and agricultural labour productivity performance. An in-depth analysis of the causes of this would require sophisticated models and large amounts of data other than that presently available. Within the scope of this study only a few factors can be discussed and conclusions are necessarily tentative.

2 part B) agriculture out-performs industry on average by about 2 per cent per year in Latin America, the Middle East-Mediterranean, and in the industrial economies.

What is needed is some kind of weighting of land based on quality. In a recent study the FAO made detailed estimates of the productive capacities of land resources in 1975 in fifty-seven developing countries (FAO 1983). The FAO made estimations in terms of the potential food production in each country under three levels of input use. By dividing potential food production by the per capita food requirement the FAO derived the ‘potential population’ at each of these input levels. We used these data for thirtytwo countries which are part of our data set as well, and took the ratio between the actual population in 1975 and the thus calculated ‘potential population’ at low levels of input as an indicator of the pressure on land.
