Agriculture in Bophuthatswana

  • T. M. Molatlhwa


In Bophuthatswana, as is the case in most of the developing areas of the world, the people are faced with the problem of a population growth increasing with the speed of a modern express train, whilst increases in food production are more related to the pace of the proverbial ox. In this situation, which has been called ‘the final battle of mankind’, a properly formulated strategy at the right time could make the difference, on the one hand, between general welfare and even prosperity or, on the other hand, poverty and famine.
