Historical Note

The Korean Agricultural Sector Study was a United States Agency for International Development and Michigan State University project to study Korea’s agriculture sectors and create models for simulations of agriculture development. The project started in July 1971 and the field work ended in early 1976 but MSU staff stayed in Korea until December 1977 when the contract ended. Some of the techniques created for the Consortium for the Study of Nigerian Rural Development were used in this project as well.

Scope and Contents note

The Korean Agricultural Sector Study records consist of drafts of chapters of the final report. The report includes Nigeria as a case example and describes the method of simulation modeling as a whole. Folder 15 in Box 1 contains information and the timeline for the project’s implementation in Korea. The special reports in the collection include technical documentation. Other reports in the collection relate to agriculture and land in Korea, United State Agency for International Development (USAID) reports, and reports about the project. Some of the reports are in Korean.
