Resumo

To meet the requirement on food, in 1972 the Bendel State Government took a giant step in the direction of state farming by stablishing some large-scale farms. Theses mechanized farms were also expected to provide the needed demonstration effects which would hopefully result in the adoption of modern techniques by farmers. In what is to follow the differential effects of two State Farms, the Agbede and Warrake Farm, are analysed. Using a combination of methods on a total sample of 319 farmers and State farmworkers data are presented to show that the Farms made both positive and negative impact on rural life. Specifically, the analysis indicates local elites as the major beneficiaries.
