Abstract

Uncritically accepted assumptions and concepts in the theory of economic development which haunt agricultural development in Africa have, frequently turned out to be false or only partly true. The relevance of indigenous approaches to agricultural development in Africa, South of the Sahara, is demonstrated in this paper to show that Africa's traditionally inherited agricultural methods are productive, employment generating, pragmatic, adaptable and, for health reasons, better than the chemicals-based intensive agricultural methods introduced from the West.
