THE MODERN SEED-FERTILISER TECHNOLOGY AND ADOPTION OF LABOUR-SAVING TECHNOLOGIES: THE PHILIPPINE CASE

While intervillage differences in the adoption of modern rice varieties (MVs) are explained mainly by environmental variables, rather than by socioeconomic factors, relative factor prices are the most important determinants of the adoption oflabour-saving technologies.

Adoption of direct seeding, however, appears to be associated with MV adoption.
