Diversity may be the most important characteristic. Also, most farming families do not rely exclusively on farming for their livelihoods but have multiple sources of income. Household survey data on farming families show that:

  • Small family farms achieve higher yields per hectare than larger family farms, but have lower labour productivity, which implies that they have lower per capita incomes from farming.
  • Small family farms also rely to a greater extent on non-farm sources of income.
  • Small farms tend to use less modern technologies (e.g. mechanization, improved seeds).
  • Small farms sell a smaller share of their output than do larger farms.
