The Process of Farm Adjustment: A Critical Review
Farm adjustment is a complex process involving decisions by farmers about a wide range of economic and non-economic factors which influence the farm business and farm family. The economics literature emphasises the importance of economic factors in the adjustment behaviour of farmers. However, the observed adjustment behaviour of farmers does not correspond very closely to that predicted by that literature. Insights from the rural sociology and psychology literature offer new perspectives on farmer behaviour which are of relevance and use to both economic researchers and policy makers concerned with farm adjustment.
