Second Agrarian Reform Law (1963)


          Agrarian reform began to change in the early 1960ís. The socialist changes of the Cuban Revolution began to focus more on economic sectors of Cuba and not on agriculture. Therefore, previous limitations on land ownership became objectionable.[1] The government nationalized all landholdings over 165 acres and organized all farmers into the National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP).[2] The agrarian reforms enacted by Castro focused on centralizing the Cuban economy and eliminating the capitalist system altogether.[3] The Second Agrarian Reform Law of 1963 was seen as the boldest measure that erupted from the Cuban Revolution.[4]
