Kuroda uses quantitative measures to investigate the rice production structure and effects of agricultural policies in Japan over the second half of the 20th century. Almost all policies have played negative roles in transferring paddy lands from small- to large-scale farms, which has slowed down to modernize the rice sector.
Yoshimi Kuroda holds a PhD from Stanford University, USA. He is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, and Visiting Research Fellow at the International Centre for the Study of East Asian Development, Kitakyushu, Japan. His lifetime and representative research contributions are presented in his two-volume work entitled Production Structure and Productivity of Japanese Agriculture, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2013.
