Description :
The paper reviews the explanation for changes in farm size in developed western countries and identifies the inadequacy of national data in presenting an accurate explanation of change. National farm size has decreased since the mid-1970s in New Zealand, but the experiences of different parts of the country have varied considerably. It has decreased the most where subdivision and intensification of land use have taken place, whilst in some pastoral regions farm size has been maintained or has even increased.
