|Samenvatting||Family farming, commonly considered old-fashioned and unable to respond effectively to market opportunities, is gaining recognition as a viable model for the future of agriculture. Yet, many maintain that only large-scale farming can sustain agricultural productivity in a global market and that a reliance on small-scale production will prevent farming communities from growing their way out of poverty. Politicians prefer land concentration and agriculture for export to achieve economies of scale. This article discusses family farming.|
