Caption: Sowing crops on a collective farm on the steppes of the Ukraine, USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) in the 1930s. Between 1928 and 1933, the Soviet Union policy of collectivization consolidated land and labour. Instead of being paid wages, labourers were given a share of the farm's products after the state had taken its portion. In the Ukraine, the collectivization imposed by Stalin caused disastrous famines in 1932 and 1933 that killed millions. Agriculture did not recover to pre-collectivization levels until the 1940s.
