The article examines the effects of land reform on agricultural production and the income of rural households in Tajikistan. Official government statistics are used to analyze trends of agricultural output at the national level and the results of three extensive surveys conducted in 2007–2008 and in 2003 by international organizations identify household-level changes. The article also reviews the legislative framework for agrarian reform in the country; examines national-level trends in farm structure and organization, livestock production, farm productivity, and cropping patterns; and analyzes shifts in size of land holdings and rural family incomes at the household level.
