This chapter explores the common basis for rapid growth in agricultural output and productivity that lies in the adaptation of agricultural technology to the contrasting factor proportions in Japan and the United States. It explains the important aspect of adaptation as the ability to generate a continuous sequence of induced innovations in agricultural technology that are subjective toward saving limiting factors. In Japan the innovations were biological and chemical, while in the United States the innovations were mechanical.
