R2: Younger farmers are learning new techniques and scientific approaches in order to modernize farming. Tractors increase efficiency and bulls imported from U.S. & U.K. improve herds. Dams and hydroelectric plants provide power. Drilling for oil, improving communications through new telegraph and telephone poles, and better roads are all a part of modernizing Turkey with Marshall aid and international cooperation. New roads help develop exploitation of Turkey’s important mineral fields (especially copper and chrome) and coal mines. Steel mills and ports are improved. The Turkish products thus more efficiently derived can be sold to the U.S. and other countries to provide hard currency with which to continue improvements within the country — an example of the potential chain reaction of the results of Marshall aid. 1950.
