The agricultural co-coperative organization as well as the credit ones appeared only after the reforms of 1861, when the political and social premises for it had been made.

The agricultural co-operative organization existing owing to the loaned funds, completely depended on the state credit policy.

It was the price adjustment that was undermining most appreciably their financial status.

It led the agricultural co-operative organizations to the financial crisis of 1924-1925.

One of the most important principles of sale-supply co-operative organization functioning is so-called co-operative sale.

The course set for overall collectivization of agriculture determined its further development only in one direction, that is collective-farm construction.
