Existing laws have three limitations on transfer of land contractual management right. The survey of 506 farmer households in Zhejiang, Jiangxi and Guangxi provinces indicates that most farmers have the consistent of knowledge of limitation on “transfer being approved by the party giving out the contract in advance” with legislative requirements, but it is not effectively implemented in actual operation. As to limitation on transferee, no matter in cognition of farmers, or in real transfer process, the transferee is not totally limited to farmers engaged in agricultural production and management. For the constraint that the transferor should have stable non-agricultural occupation or stable income source, most farmers agree, but more than half farmers have not confirmed the transfer action in practice.
