Collectivization of agriculture

The beginning of the agriculture collectivisation process in Romania was decided during the Plenary of the PMR Central Committee from 3 to 5 March 1949. By abolishing peasants’ private property the communist state aimed to abolish capitalist relations in rural areas and take control of all agriculture. During the collectivisation process, declared as complete in 1962, several peasant revolts took place due to abuses committed by the authorities.
