This is an original Russian poster saluting corn as the best crop of the kolkhoz.
For history buffs: As a collective farm, a kolkhoz was legally organized as a production cooperative. The Standard Charter of a kolkhoz, which since the early 1930s had the force of law in the USSR, is a model of cooperative principles in print. It speaks of the kolkhoz as a "form of agricultural production cooperative of peasants that voluntarily unite for the purpose of joint agricultural production based on [...] collective labor". It asserts that "the kolkhoz is managed according to the principles of socialist self-management, democracy, and openness, with active participation of the members in decisions concerning all aspects of internal life".
Perfectly retro, perfectly Soviet, and great for a child's room, or maybe a agriculture expert.
Poster has been folded for many years, but remains in overall very good condition (small tears as shown in photos).
