Changes in Post-war Japanese Agriculture Changes, Problems Setting Up, and the Analytical Framework
The major objective of this chapter is to overview statistically how agricultural structure has changed and what sorts of problems Japanese agriculture faced from 1956 through to the early 2000s. More specifically, this chapter will try to clarify major problems by statistically investigating changes in: crops and livestock, transfers of farmland, the definitions and numbers of farm households, the budgets for agriculture as a whole, and changes in the budgets for agricultural research and extension activities. During this investigation the statistics of the rice sector of Tohoku will be observed in parallel to those for Japan, using the translog VC (Chapter 2) and VP (Chapter 3) function frameworks, respectively.
