Theories of agricultural growth

Would love opinions from those in various disciplines on this:

Schultz's Transforming Traditional Agriculture and Boserup's Conditions of Agricultural Growth appeared in 1964 and 1965.  Both are landmarks but the books had some crucial differences, especially in the importance of external inputs in peasant agriculture.  Which would you say has been more influential in the end?

This is for something I'm writing that would benefit from some differing perspectives.

Thanks
