Abstract

Accompanied by the continuous transformation of the industrial structure, massive rural labor in China has begun their migration to nonagricultural industries. This huge transfer of rural labor has shown a positive pushing influence on the transformation of China’s industrial structure, creating a timely opportunity to the development of agriculture and the structural transformation of the rural area. This paper investigates the interrelations between the transformation in the industrial structure and the rural-urban labor movement, and provides an in-depth analysis of the unique advantages of the family farm system as well as its bottlenecks by exploring the practices of the Songjiang family farm system in Shanghai as a case study.

Keywords: agriculture, family farm, industrialization, China
