Languages of publication
The article is the result of the research project “Theoretical, institutional and empirical conditions and premises of economic potentials synergies of African countries and Polish economy” financed by the National Science Centre, Poland [DEC-2012/07/B/HS4/00743].
The article provides a study of the most important literature on the rural development in Asian developing countries in terms of arrangements between a farmer and a company. The review of the theoretical aspects of outgrower schemes is the background to comparative analysis of smallholders’ contract in Eastern and Southern Asian developing countries. The paper discusses the potential results of these schemes, especially in relation to the economic development. The article addresses the significance of outgrower schemes in the light of increasing welfare of participants as well as potential disadvantages and barriers.
