Also discussed are several concerns about the desirability of contract farming from a poverty and equity standpoint, foremost of which involves the opportunistic nature of such arrangements. Also presented are the steps taken by the Gujarat government to encourage contract farming, and the findings of a study that explored farmers' and contract agents' perspectives on contract farming.
