Abstract
A new agricultural management main body fostered is an important step in solving the problem, “who will farm in the future”. As a major grain producing area, Hubei Province plays the key role in ensuring food security. We analyse land resource and labour resource flow relationship between a new agricultural management main body and an ordinary peasant household. The results show that the number of migrant workers working in Hubei Province increases year by year in recent years, which is mainly ascribed to the number of agricultural workers who are engaged in primary industry in the province increases. In the slack season of farming, women and the elderly do part-time jobs in local large-scale production whose seasonal demands of employment are met. Migrant workers are sources of primary labour of new agricultural management main body, and women and the elderly are secondary labour. The land area of scale management is less than a quarter of the area of contracted land of farmers. The scattered smallholder production mode dominates. Labour productivity is low. Thus, we put forward a few policy proposes, such as properly solving the trouble of migrant workers back at home, the use of “Internet+” in the development of new agricultural management main body, regulating procedure of land transfer and enhancing the contracts management.
