Agricultural development in the Dominican Republic

Rethinking Caribbean development: 135-140
Agricultural development in the Dominican Republic
State agricultural strategies in the Dominican Republic aimed at self-sufficiency, increased income for peasants, more foreign exchange through agricultural exports, and keeping the cost of food down have not raised living standards in the rural areas. The small size and the dispersal of peasant farms work against efforts aimed at increasing their production and productivity. Capitalization takes place in large and medium-sized farms oriented towards exports.
