Glossary: production team

DEFINITION:
Formerly the basic accounting and farm production unit in the peoples commune system. Production teams were largely disbanded during the agricultural reforms of 1982-85. In the administrative hierarchy, the team was the lowest level, the next higher levels being the production brigade and peoples commune. Typically the team owned most of the land and was responsible for income distribution. Since 1984 most teams have been replaced by villages. (See also peoples commune, production brigade, village.)
