This paper addresses the conceptual issues around the negative price effects of technological change on agricultural producers, explores price policy options vis-à-vis this problem, and reviews and compares experiences across Asian countries as they transformed their rural economies. It then draws implications for the challenge of achieving a smallholder-led agricultural revolution in Africa in the context of market liberalization.
