Based on highly topical international research in a high-priority area, this book documents the farm-level effects of the reorientation of agricultural policies with different themes for the different countries such as micro-credit, infrastructure, cash crop production and food security. It discusses staple food production in sub-Saharan Africa and its response to changing geo-political, macro-economic and agricultural policy, to deepen our understanding of how agricultural development unfolds at farm level. It is a useful resource for all those researching or involved with food security, agricultural development and African food planning.
