In China, with rapid economic development, nonagricultural employment has increased. Moreover, surplus farmers can be absorbed by the nonagricultural sector, and it is common for farmers to engage in part-time labor. However, because of the agricultural labor force is decreasing in the household and the problems of the agricultural production, so the inefficiency and non-cultivated plough have becoming serious. Against this background, this paper clarifies the relation between agricultural production and part-time labor in the suburbs ofinland China.<br>For this purpose, we perform a regression analysis on the data from the Xi'an Statistical Yearbook and from a primary field survey conducted in the suburbs of inland China.<br>We conclude that those who engage in only agricultural activities in the suburbs of a city find it difficult to escape poverty. Moreover, part-time work, which is essential for funding necessary investments in agriculture, is also very important for farmers.
