Some theoretical issues in transforming small farmers



Some theoretical issues in transforming small farmers



China Rural Survey ( 1): 16-22



The transformation of small farmers was discussed theoretically under the subheadings of definition of small farmers, an outmoded production way, the long term existence of small farmer production, no manual workshop stage in agriculture, cooperative shares, the nature of a cooperative economy, reform of agriculture in accordance with the requirements of share cooperatives, shares based on households whilst not undermining the collective economy, and trends for the development of a cooperative economy. According to the classical theories, small farmers had the characteristics of managing their small plots of farmland in a backward and outmoded method with backward tools and techniques, self-supply and self-reliance, and had low living standards. Though small farmers were producing in outmoded ways they have existed for many years. It is recommended that they become organized in a pattern of share cooperatives to develop economically.
