Scholars in agriculture from Israel, Turkey, Canada, and the US offer an innovative approach to studying the allocation of natural and human resources in the agricultural sector of developed, developing, and transition economies.

Part B contains material on knowledge and productivity, and governance and agricultural policies. A section on labor and management on farm households focuses on education, efficient allocation of time between farm work and off-farm employment opportunities, and management and entrepreneurial skills. The book is for scholars and advanced students of agricultural and resource economics. Many chapters conclude with policy implications, making the book of interest to policy makers.
