Contract farming and rural social change: some implications of the Australian experience



Contract farming and rural social change: some implications of the Australian experience



Environmental Impact Assessment Review 10(1/2): 145-155



Contract farming represents a significant change in the organization of farm production in both the developed and developing worlds.

These include cropping, use of chemicals (pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers), and harvesting decisions, and are no longer the exclusive province of farm owners and operators.
