Scale farming operations in China

Agriculture in China is often characterized as small-scale farming because of the limited farm sizes. However, in recent years the country has witnessed widespread increased-scale farming operations. In this paper, we aim to systematically illustrate the recent scale development of farming operations in China based on cases taken from Zhejiang province. Two main types of the scale farming operations in China are identified. These are based on: (1) concentrated farmland and (2) agricultural services. Finally, the trends of scale farming operations in China are discussed.
