This study of Indonesia's food policy formulation was initiated in February 1989. The study, conducted in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Junior Minister Sjarifuddin Baharsjah of the Ministry of Agriculture, and Faisal Kasryno, director of the Bureau of Planning, were on the study's steering committee and helped to plan, organize, and implement the study and associated workshops. Their support of efforts to enhance the Ministry's capabilities for policy analysis greatly benefited the course of study activities.

This report provides documentation of the food crop policy models developed through CARD's collaborative study with the Ministry of Agriculture. Three models were documented, each to be run using microcomputer-based spreadsheet software such as Lotus 1-2-3.
