Dehkan farm / Dehkan plot
In Uzbekistan, a dehkan farm is a family-based small-scale enterprise that produces and markets agricultural products; it uses family labor and cultivates a plot adjacent to the family home. Such a plot is locally referred to as ‘tomorka’ and is usually smaller than 0.1 ha. About 10 percent of households have additional dehkan plots, often outside, but close to, their communities. These additional dehkan plots (0.15-0.2 ha) are used for cultivation and/or for house construction. Dehkan plots (both tomorka and additional dehkan plots) are held for a lifetime and can be inherited. Dehkan farms may be registered as legal commercial agricultural entities; but there is no requirement of registration.

The key objective of the decree is to consolidate a large number of existing small (less than 10 ha) leasehold farms into sustainable (around 50 ha) agricultural enterprises and to improve the efficiency of irrigation.
