By 和彦 江頭 and Kazuhiko Egashira

Due to unawareness of the countries in central and southwestern Asia, however, agro-ecological and socio-economic factors or reasons responsible to the above analytical results were not well clarified.先に,東南アジアと南アジア14国の農業人口,土地利用,穀物(稲,小麦,玉蜀黍)生産に関する統計を提示し,いささかの私見を述べた(江頭,2002).本文では,中央アジアと西南アジアの14国について,同様に,FAO農業生産年報(国際連合食糧農業機関(編)国際食糧農業協会(訳),2001)から抜粋し,農業人口,土地利用,穀物生産統計を提示し,解析する
