Agrarian Reform and Redevelopment Issues in Portugal 1974–8

  • Armando Trigo de Abreu


The key word to describe the evolution of Portuguese agriculture since the beginning of the twentieth century is probably crisis — crisis in the food supply for internal consumption, crisis in the social efficiency of the sector, crisis in farm profitability. These crises were aggravated by massive emigration, both internal and to neighbouring countries, from about 1960. We start with some notes on changes in Portuguese agriculture over the period.
