The Rice Industry in Malaya, 1920-1940
Ding Eing Tan Soo Hai
At the beginning of this period Malaya was reliant on imports for two thirds of its rice consumption due to a fairly laissez faire policy of leaving production to Malay padi farmers. That looked as if it might change in the 1930s with a shake up of the agriculture department, the founding of a school of agriculture and the creation of a Department of Irrigation. The author concludes by analysing whether these changes had any real impact. Very Good Paperback. First Edition. 60 pages with maps tables and a bibliography.
