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.
