Yujiro Hayami, agricultural economist at IRRI (1974-77) under Randy Barker, passed away on 24 December 2012 in Tokyo. A large part of the achievements of Yujiro, an internationally recognized agricultural economist, came from his experience at IRRI, including his intensive investigation over four decades of one village in eastern Laguna.

Among his many works is the classic A Rice Village Saga: Three Decades of Green Revolution in the Philippines co-authored with Masao Kikuchi. He also wrote Anatomy of a Peasant Economy.

A funeral mass was held on 29 December in Tokyo as well as in Los BaƱos, by his friends in the Philippines.
