Description:

1. Collectivisation
- Small individual farms were merged into larger collective farm
- It was believed that larger units of land could be farmed more efficiently through mechanisation.
- More crops could be harvested and exported to other countries to raise funds for industrialisation.
- With more efficient farming, surplus farmers could become factory workers.
- By 1935, almost all the farms in the Soviet Union were collectivized.

Measures:
• State fixed a number of crops that farmers were to produce.
• Equipment such as tractors provided by the state.
• Farmers who failed to meet the quota were punished.
