Irrigation and Rice Cultivation in West Malaysia
Rice padi cultivation was transformed in Malaysia in the years following independence so that production was increased and dependence on imports lessened, thanks to many Government subsidies and interventions. While there have been several studies on financial support to growers, there has been less focus on the systems of irrigation. In this monograph the author traces the history of rice irrigation in the country from the early 19th century, linking it to pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial practices. New Paperback. First Edition. 63 pages with illustrations.
