This chapter analyzes why rice farming productivity was higher in Taiwan than in the Philippines and Thailand before the Asian Green Revolution of the late 1960s. It focuses on two hypotheses acquired from data collected in the Philippines, Thailand, and Taiwan. The first hypothesis implies that the increases in yield of rice and differences in yield among major rice-producing areas within Southeast Asia reflect variations in environmental conditions under which rice is grown, while the second hypothesis points out that differences in rice yield between Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia reflect variations in technological and institutional factors.

Keywords:   rice farming productivity, Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand, Asian Green Revolution, rice-producing areas, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia
