In agriculture the Soviet government simply encouraged the peasants to join collective farms as far as I know. In industry did they simply use a decree or some subtler methods?

At first it was decree of nationalizing of all industrial enterprizes. The other thing part of nationalized enterprizes was very small compared to the industry built afterwards.

Torture, imprisonment and bullets to the heads were usual methods when forcing people into something especially when taking their property.

Maybe industry but not the land which was "nationalized" by fascist bolshevik government. Stolen is a preciser word.

Purges, slave labur, tortures, imprisonments, gulag, murders, terror... you do not agree? You are an aberration and you have to be annihilated.

Can you give the text of this decree? Do you know the justification?

In Slovenia communists proclaimed that no property will be nationalized. Then all enterpreneurs were proclaimed traitors and nazi collaborators and communists nationalized their factories. Most of them were actually communist supporters who supported them through WWII but after the war there were fake trials, the smartest ones escaped from Slovenia with what ever portable property they were able to take with them and were of course proclaimed traitors because of that.

There was a factory of chocolate (today named Gorenjka in Lesce https://gorenjka.si/en/gorenjka-history/ where owner and his two daughters were allowed to work as workers and teach others of production methods while a factory became nationalized. Other factory of chocolate was ran by monks and disbanded (their product was considered elite in AH empire, they got a name Imperial from emperor Franz Joseph).

In Ljubljana there was one owner communist could not have blamed of anything, were having no fake witnesses against him etc. So suddenly he was unable to import any raw materials for his business and it collapsed soon.

Communists were also sometimes "buying" businesses, they were of course paying few % of their real value. Level of production came to pre WWII level only in sixties while communists were lying all the time until today how they have built everything from a scratch, that before them there was no industry worth mentioning.
