Agricultural Land Markets and Land Leasing in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
The aim of this study is to identify the driving forces that shape agricultural land structures, land markets and land leasing in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). Institutional developments and land reforms have so far been modest in the FYROM. Land ownership and land use is characterized by several smallscale family farms and a few large-scale agricultural enterprises. The small family farms operate on several smallholdings, which is one of the major obstacles to the modernisation of family farm production. A considerable portion of the land is uncultivated, which affects land market and land leasing values. Due to underdeveloped institutional frameworks and market institutions in support of small-scale farms, a large proportion of state-owned land is rented by agricultural enterprises.
