    It has often been stated that land fragmentation and farm structures characterized by small agricultural holdings and farms divided in a large number of parcels have been the side-effect of land reform in Central and Eastern Europe. This article reports the findings of a study of land reform in 25 countries in the region from 1989 and onwards and provides an overview of applied land reform approaches. With a basis in theory on land fragmentation, the linkage between land reform approaches and land fragmentation is explored.

Conservation agriculture can rise to the major challenge of making sustainable intensification of production systems a reality.

The paper explains why these changes have occurred and why there are large differences among transition countries in the extent and the nature of the remaining distortions.

    Russia

    The migration of young people from rural areas is common in all agricultural regions of Russia, and Altai Krai, located in southwestern Siberia, is no exception. Out-migration, aversion to working in agriculture and the aging of farmers and farm managers are serious problems that raise questions about who will work in agriculture in the future. This paper aims to investigate factors that affect the decisions of agricultural students from Altai Krai to out-migrate or to return to their rural parental municipalities after finishing their university studies.

    Russia

    The overall finding of this report is
    that much agricultural policy is made at the regional level,
    and here the explicit price, and trade policy distortions
    are significantly worse than at the federal level. The
    result is patchwork of inconsistent policies, that has
    fragmented the Russian national market. The most serious
    policy issues at the federal level, are in the legal
    framework, the continued state domination of some markets,

    A major problem in the Europe and
    Central Asia (ECA) agricultural sector and rural areas
    during the transition was the breakdown of the relationships
    of farms with input suppliers and output markets. The
    simultaneous privatization and restructuring of the farms
    and of the up- and downstream companies in the agrifood
    chain have caused major disruptions. The result is that many
    farms and rural households face serious constraints in

    Belarus

    Productivity in Belarus'
    agricultural sector has improved considerably, but large
    parts of crop and livestock production are not
    internationally competitive. The state's regulatory and
    fiscal support system for agriculture has been instrumental
    in improving the sector's performance. But the massive
    distortions to agricultural incentives it creates to prevent
    the sector from reaching its full potential. And the high
