The Vital Importance to South Africa of food production by the white agricultural sector

  • SJ du Plessis


The information presented here is intended to show that the contribution of the White agricultural sector in South Africa has, with some singular exceptions, thus far succeeded remarkably well in the onerous task of producing food in adequate quantities and at reasonable prices for the rapidly increasing population of this country, even while many other countries of the world are experiencing serious setbacks in production. The value of such contribution can hardly be overestimated and should strengthen the close relationship we know to exist between the urban and rural sections of the population of this country.
