The land has been distributed bias toward large capitalist farmers. Since they have more resources (capital, labor etc), they are able to accumulate the land and leaving other peasants with small plot of land. Many peasants are also left from agriculture sector and becoming rural wage labor (see Lenin)
My point is the access to the land is still problematic coupled with imperfect information and interlinked market. Some poor farmers do have a dream to enlarge their holding but then they don’t have enough access to credit for buying more land. The same happens whenever they want to improve land productivity but then the input market is not farmers’ friendly. Since the farmers are poor, the increased cost would be covered by loan from someone else’s pocket (usually money lender, often large holding landlords).
Instead of playing with the price, first, land distribution must be worked out. Some people are reluctant to this idea since it sounds as communist approach. Well, I can say our government starts doing this too (here). So does our government turn to be communist?
so if we want to improve the welfare of the poor farmers but they do have tiny plot, why dont we give them the land for doing farming?
