Title Contract Farming
Abstract Interest in contract farming is expanding, particularly in countries that previously followed a central planning policy and in those countries that have liberalized marketing through the closing down of marketing boards. Changes in consumption habits, such as the increasing numeber of fast food outlets, the growing role played by supermarkets and the continued expansion of world trade in fresh and processed products, have also provided the impetus for further development of contract farming.
