Abstract

The paper shows that agriculture can play a new role in city-state economies such as Singapore. Although high-technology farming will make more effective contributions in future, the non-monetary benefits of agriculture may remain paramount in such economies. It is emphasized that the environmental effects of agriculture should be measured by using the newly developed techniques in order to make a proper evaluation of their economic role.
