Organic Connection between Small Farmers and Modern Agriculture in China: Obstacles and Solutions

Shaolei YANG, Juan CHEN


As the basic main body of the agricultural production and operation over thousands of years in China, the small farmers have been playing an important role in the agricultural and rural development for a long time. However, the obstacles between the small farmers and the modern agricultural development are gradually appearing with the continuous improvement of productivity, which are mostly reflected in such fields as the technological utilization, the agricultural service, the small farmers’ quality and the capital element. From the view of the future development tendency, solutions to break those obstacles mainly include promoting the agricultural technological innovation and the equipment upgrading, developing the small farmers’ professional cooperatives, improving the agricultural socialization service system, cultivating the new-style professional farmers, and perfecting the rural financial system.
