Empirical Study on the Will of Farmland Transfer among Different Farmer Groups—a sampling survey on 42 counties and cities, 64 towns and 74 villages in Jiangxi Province

Taking Jiangxi Province as an example, on the basis of the sampling survey on 42 counties and cities, 64 towns and 74 villages in Jiangxi Province, the will of farmland transfer among different farmer groups with different income levels, different ages, and different educational background, is analyzed. The research indicates that as for middle-income or high-income groups, leaving home to seek jobs elsewhere is the most principal factor impacting farmland transfer, while as for low-income group, the price of agricultural products is an important factor impacting farmers’ land cultivation; permanent urban residence certificate is no longer the principal factor causing farmers’ land transfer, and it tends to be rational for farmers to abandon farmland.
