Definition of farmers
“He/she is a civil or judicial person who exercises management control over the agricultural farm operations and takes major decisions regarding resource use. The farmer has technical and economic responsibility for the farm and may undertake all responsibilities directly, or delegate responsibilities related to day-to-day work management to a hired manager. The work of a farmer can be material, when he conducts directly by himself the physical agricultural activities of the farm, or only intellectual, like in the case of that farmer who lives in the city, and travels periodically to the farm, or not, but takes the major decision of the farm operation.”
(National Agriculture Census 2009 Report, Department of Agriculture, Fiji)

To me, farmers are persons who cultivate the land.
