Land reform, household specialisation and rural development in China

By Colin Brown, Senior Lecturer and Chen KaiColin Brown and Chen Kai


Abstract: Recent land reforms in China have sought to address fundamental problems with the Household Production Responsibility System such as land fragmentation. Primarily the reforms have targeted land productivity and grain output.
