On the Question of the Role of the Personal Household Plot


  • Zh. Omirova


The place and role of the personal household plot (PHP) today are determined by numerous factors: it is an important source of agricultural products; it promotes the more effective use of land and labor resources; it is a source of additional income for the working people; and it promotes the growth of the commodity base of the collective farm market, consumer cooperatives, and state trade. The PHP permits the better combination of the social and personal interests of the working people. The substantial role of the PHPs in agricultural production is quite clearly demonstrated by the fact that under the Tenth Five-Year Plan, they accounted for more than 25 % of the total gross agricultural product, including approximately 31% of the output of animal husbandry. The share of personal household plots in commodity output was roughly 11%.
