thank all my colleagues at the Rockefeller Foundation who have, with
much patience, helped me gain a clearer understanding of the complexity
of the issues involved in the promotion of agriculture in the
developing world. I would also like to make clear that the views
expressed in this article are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of the Rockefeller Foundation.
