Yet it is argued in this paper that the deepening rural poverty in Turkey is not shaped only in relation to the recent developments but, from the 1980s to today, changing rural policies, subsidies, and forms of production have prepared the dissociation in rural areas which had an impact on the changing agricultural statistics starting from the 1970s until today.
