dc.description.abstract<p>The Expert Group Meeting on Research Implications of Expanded Production of Selected Upland Crops in Tropical Asia was held in Bangkok, Thailand, on 27-30 November 1984. The meeting was organized by the Regional Co-ordination Centre for Research and Development of Coarse Grains, Pulses, Roots and Tuber (CGPRT) Crops in the Humid Tropics of Asia and the Pacific ( CGPRT Centre ), which is a subsidiary body of the United Nations Economics and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN/ESCAP).</p> <p>Twenty-six papers were presented for discussion. More than 50 experts from 12 Asian countries and 8 international and regional institutions and agencies attended the Meeting. The papers cover demand, marketing and production aspects of major CGPRT crops in developing countries of Asia. They focus on identifying constraints to increased production and productivity, specifying areas of research needs, and considering methodologies appropriate for socio-economic analysis of these crops.</p> <p>This volume will have many uses. It contains a large amount of basic data on CGPRT crops in tropical Asia, and will therefore be useful as a sourcebook on agriculture in the region. It also contains a variety of analyses and methodological considerations which will be useful to economists, agronomists and researchers in other disciplines, and to policy-makers in the region. We hope that this book will contribute to establishing and promoting a co-operative research network for the development of CGPRT crops in Asia and the Pacific.</p>
