This chapter explores some of the factors which policy makers must take into consideration in trying to promote or control contract farming schemes. The first part highlights some of the ambiguities and tradeoffs that can result, as different goals or internal dynamics come into conflict. The second discusses some areas in which positive sum solutions are possible, and where sustainable benefits to small farmers can be achieved through state intervention. The final section explores the degree to which successful contract farming experiences can be replicated in other contexts.
