Denouncing the agrarian policy of the Soviet period in the delta of the Amu-Darya River, and praising the decisions implemented in this field since the coming to power of Islam Karimov in 1990, this short paper focuses on the positive impact of new legislations on land property (the texts adopted in 1998, in particular), and insists on the strategic significance of cotton monoculture for the Karakalpak Autonomous Republic.
