sharecropping is a type of agricultural development wherein a landowner allows a tenant to use the land in return for a share of the crops produced.
some landowners/planters took advantage of sharecroppers under this system due to ample opportunity to cheat the sharecropper. early in us sharecropping, croppers were newly freed slaves (later would see the inclusion of poor whites). the sharecroppers received tools and goods from the landowners (the price of these taken out of their payment), with landowners dictating what was grown and croppers often in agreement to sell their portion of the crop back to the landowner with unethical price manipulation. landowners also had the ability to threaten sharecroppers with ending their agreement and no way to earn a living or feed their families if they did not produce or operate as commanded.
