Agrarian reform is more than a government initiated or backed redistribution of land; more broadly it can mean an overall redirection of the agrarian systems of the country which often includes land reform measures; can also include credit measures, training and extension . More than land reform, it focuses on broader set of issues such as the class character of the relations of production and distribution in farming and related enterprises, and how these connect to the wider class structure. It is thus concerned with economic and political power and the relation between them.
