Contract farming. Partnerships for growth (En)

Series: FAO Agricultural Services Bulletins

Contract farming can be defined as an agreement between farmers and processing and/or marketing firms for the production and supply of agricultural products under forward agreements. Interest in contract farming is expanding. The purpose of this guide is to provide advice: first, to management of existing contract farming companies on how to improve their operations; second, to companies that are considering starting such ventures on the preconditions and management actions necessary for success; and third, to government officials seeking to promote new contract farming operations or monitor existing operations.

The guide describes in detail the general modus operandi, internal functions and monitoring mechanisms of contract farming. It emphasizes that sustainable contract farming arrangements are only possible when the various parties see themselves involved in a long-term partnership.
