Large and Small Business in Russian Agriculture: Adaptation to Market
AbstractRussian farms are classified into large and small agricultural businesses depending on both their volume of operations and organisational form. The article examines the development of these two groups of farms during the transition and their adaptation to the new market conditions. The effect of regional factors and agricultural policies on the changing farm structure is analysed. Government support policies are shown to have a pronounced large farm bias, which is inconsistent with a market economy. The relationship between large corporate farms and rural household plots is quantified. The partial productivity of land and labour is compared between corporate and individual farms. Comparative Economic Studies (2005) 47, 85–100. doi:10.1057/palgrave.ces.8100078
