Making Globalisation Work Better for the Poor through Contract Farming

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Sep 28, 2014 | Asian Development Bank

The changing structure of agricultural trade in a globalising world has become integral to rural development. Contract farming has emerged in Asia as a promising rural development strategy, providing technical training, production inputs, and market linkages to smallholders. This report by the Asian Development Bank shows that the practice of contract farming has improved lives in rural areas in Asia, especially of small-scale farmers who now have assured markets for their produce. Its service of linking producers and markets, however, is unchanged, as well as the gains it brings to smallholder producers, agribusiness firms, and eventually consumers.
