Edited by Steven Haggblade () and Peter B. R. Hazell

No 978-0-8018-9503-6 in IFPRI books from International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

Abstract: Successes in African Agriculture investigates how to reverse this decline. Instead of cataloging failures, as many past studies have done, this book identifies episodes of successful agricultural growth in Africa and identifies processes, practices, and policies for accelerated growth in the future. The individual studies follow developments in, among other areas, the farming of maize in East and Southern Africa, cassava across the middle belt of Africa, cotton in West Africa, horticulture in Kenya, and dairying in East Africa.
