This report contains details of two ACIAR projects: an agronomic project designed to study environmental constraints to increase productivity of rainfed rice-based farming systems in the lowlands and upland areas of Sri Lanka and the Philippines and; an economic project focusing on the factors responsible for the difference between potential productivity and actual farm performance. Initial findings were presented at a workshop in the Philippines in 1987, and abstracts were published as ACIAR Technical Report No. 8. Subsequent to the workshop, analysis of the data continued and expanded versions of the Philippines papers constitute the body of this report
