Land tenure structure in Egyptian agriculture: its changes and impacts

Changes in Egypt's agricultural land tenure structure are discussed, with particular reference to the period 1961-81. Number of holdings increased by over 50% during the period, with total farmland increasing by 6.6%. The trend was towards smaller farm holdings, with an increase in privately owned farms at the expense of rented farms. An analysis of social and economic characteristics of farmers is carried out.
