Agriculture occupies a key place in the whole perestroika struggle in the Soviet Union. This is because Gorbachev needs some visible results from perestroika if he is to undermine popular scepticism about it (and widespread hostility) and agriculture is one of the very few sectors (the others being individual economic activity and the new non-agricultural co-operatives) where quick results can be achieved.
