This chapter focuses on the rice technology transfer from Japan to Korea and Taiwan and its implications for Japanese agriculture. The import from of rice to Korea and Taiwan produced agricultural stagnation and low farm income in Japan, which caused general economic and political instability during the interwar period. The chapter concludes with hypotheses that should be considered in accounting for the difference between the Japanese and English colonial experience and the implications of the Japanese colonial development for today’s developing nations.
