Vink analysed the basic elements of farm management in Indonesian smallholdings. General principles of farm management were tested in an economic environment, where social conditions had a large impact. The amount of influence on the individual farm enterprise was discussed for the various peasant societies of the Indonesian archipelago. Thereafter the use and allocation was described of the factors of production: nature, labour and capital on the smallholders' farm. A summary was given of labour analyses, carried out in cultivation of sawah rice and other crops. The types of labour and the distribution of labour within the family were described. The farmer's land assets were discussed with reference to land tenure and the size of holdings. The intensity of farming was considered in an extensive analysis of the exploitation and use of natural resources in the 'ladang system'. Special attention was paid to type and quantity of agricultural investments by the peasant farmer.
