Improving the income position of the farm population in developing countries by non-farm work and inter-farm mechanization



Improving the income position of the farm population in developing countries by non-farm work and inter-farm mechanization



Z. ausl. Landw., Frankfurt a.M, 9: 3, 197-210



In areas with small farms and surplus labour there are normaly few employment opportunities for family workers outside the farm. The possibilities of seasonal work on lange farms and periodic work on schools, roads and public development projects is discussed, and also of work an factories processing farm products. If there are no employment opportunities outside the farm the cost of mechanization can only foe paid for out of increased production and not out of existing farm income.
