Editorial: Narkomzem (People's Commissariat of Agriculture), RSFSR — Наркомзем (Народный комиссариат земледелия), РСФСР

The People's Commissariat for Agriculture (Narkomzem) of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR) was established in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) in October 1917. Its headquarters later moved to 1 Orlikov Way in Moscow. Narkomzem was managed at the republic level and was therefore considered a lower-status administration. In 1929-‘30, the All-Union Narkomzem was created and the commissariat’s status was elevated. While Narkomzem played an important role in the socialist transformation of agriculture in the USSR, it did not expressly carry out forced collectivization of the countryside in the early 1930s. In 1946, All-Union Narkomzem was supplanted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
