Abstract

Since 1990 the number of agricultural holdings in West Germany decreased from 630 000 to 485 000 until 1998, whereas it increased in the new Länder from 4 750 to about 32 000. In eastern Germany all agricultural production cooperatives and state-owned estates had to be dissolved within a short period of time. 26 000 individual farms and 3 000 partnerships have been established. The successors of collective and state farms cultivate still on average more than 1 000 ha farmland. The individual farm enterprises cultivate about 49 ha, this is twice the size of corresponding farms in West Germany. The radical transformation process was accompanied by a massive reduction of employment to only one sixth of the initial employment figure. Today, medium-sized farms in the new Länder are even more profitable than their counterparts in the West. - (HPB)
