The focus of this paper is on the revision of the technologies presently used for the production of grain, potatoes, and cotton. Its main purpose is to provide an overview of the diversity of the technologies used. Preliminary work on this review was carried out within the scope of the activities of Task 2 ("Technological Transformations in Agriculture: Resource Limitations and Environmental Consequences") of the Food and Agriculture Program. The ultimate goal of this task's activities is the establishment of a data base on the various alternative technologies available in the world for the production of major crops and animal products.

This paper can be seen as a first step towards this final objective providing high quality information backed by concrete data. However, it was not feasible to structure the information in such a way as to allow full integration with the planned data base during the first phase of research activities.

Research work on the topics presented has been carried out partly at IIASA and partly at the All-Union Research Institute of Information and Technical-Economic Research in Agriculture.
