Globally, farms of more than 50 hectares operate two-thirds of the world's farm land while farms up to 2 hectares only cover about 12 percent and those up to 5 hectares around 20 percent. However, this reflects the situation in high-income and upper-middle-income countries (especially in Latin America).  In low-and middle-income countries small and medium-sized farms are much more important. In low-income countries, farms up to 2 hectares occupy about 40 percent of the farm land and those up to 5 hectares about 70 percent, underscoring their fundamental contribution to food security.
