Technology innovation is the most important factor for. agricultural development , The long term trend of agricultural production is. expressed by the meta production function , An envelope of short term production functions for the. The change between short term production functions in. successive periods is regarded as technology, advancement. The shape of meta production functions for a pure. agricultural society shows a decelerating form according. to time because technology innovation is very slow . 2 4 Limitations of a decelerating agricultural society.

Productivity related structure problem, The traditional society inevitably experienced a growth. ceiling because of the low productivity resulting from. lack of modern technologies Rostow 1960 , According to the stages of economic growth hypothesis . the transition from an agricultural to an industrial. economy moves the society to a more developed state . Movement of productive resources from agriculture to. industry promotes economic growth Johnston and, Mellor 1961 . 2 4 Limitations of a decelerating agricultural society. Market related structure problem, Production of organic matters and mechanization of. agricultural production are difficult to adjust quickly in. response to changes in market conditions and the supply is. therefore inelastic in product or price dimensions . The relative importance of agricultural production decreases. as the economy grows because income elasticity of. agricultural products is less than that of industrial products. Schultz 1953 , Equilibrium theory Kelley Williamson and Cheetham 1972 . Yamaguchi and Binswanger 1975 , Constraint of demand which is attributed to low income. elasticity acts as the fundamental limit of agricultural growth . 2 4 Limitations of a decelerating agricultural society. Institution related structure problem of a post , agricultural society. Agricultural development is confined by country specific. institutional conditions , Colonial period, Taxation regulation property rights institutions and. natural environments of each country, Public subsidies antitrust law exemptions in the. agricultural sector during the 1920s agricultural crisis. by US government , Mundlak 2000 claimed that agricultural development. should be investigated not only within the sector but also.
