In 19th century Greece there was rivalry between those that supported the Chiflik system and those that supported small farmers. The ciflik owners tended to focus the production of their large estates to grains while the small time farmers were focused on export crops. To be more specific the export crops were arboriculture products (currants, olive oil, wine and silk cocoons) (Petmezas, 2006).
The urban bourgeoisie usually supported the small farmers since they expected that the hard currency obtained from the export crops will fuel the industrial development of Greece. Thus, I think that the earlier settlement of the National Estates and the continuation of the Kapodistrian Tiryns school will assist to that direction.
The chiflik system was Ottoman in origin, right? I seem to remember it being the agricultural system used in Ottoman Europe until its conquest in the 20th century.
Seems like a shift to smaller farmers would benefit the economy more but that there may be a greater need to import food crops from elsewhere.
