Tito has spoken and written about the problems of agriculture and village in the context of wider economic and social questions. However, his views and attitudes towards various questions had a significant influence upon the determining of directions of development of Yugoslav agriculture as well as the character of measures of agricultural policy. Constantly Tito has pointed out to the importance of agriculture in the total economic development of this country, bearing in mind the favourable natural and socio-economic conditions for the development of this field of material production. He has accentuated the part played by the village and rural population in the Yugoslav revolution, he has pointed out to the importance of unity between the working rural population and the working class in building up of the country and the socialist society, to the prospects of rural population and small commodity production in the process of socialist transformation of small commodity production. Rural households as its carriers cannot be expropriated. In the process of socialist transformation of agriculture Tito has ascribed particular importance to integration and co-operatives as to organizations, which should and can enable the development of large-scale production in the village, and which reestablish and develop the self-management socialist social relations. For a successful development of agriculture and agricultural production the volume of investments in this field of production is particulary important as well as the effective utilization of means and the presence of staff — professionally qualified and ideologically and politically clearly decisive for the development of agriculture and transformation of village upon self- -management socialist basis. Tito has seen the prospects of Yugoslav agriculture in the development of large-scale, specialized, higly-productive commodity production, which is realized through the simultaneous development of self-management socio- -economic relation, where working people independently decide upon the conditions and results of their work.
