Agrarian policy discussions have traditionally centred on how such policy can be formulated so as to galvanise agricultural production (the 'reversing of the terms of trade bias against agriculture' of the Neo-liberals being one obvious facet of this approach) or to reduce rural inequalities (as epitomised by the various land redistribution laws passed in the sixties and the seventies). In terms of agricultural policy objectives, sustainability of the resource base has generally trailed in last.
