The influence of agricultural development on the nutritional status of homeland populations

  • FCT Coetzee


The nutritional status of a community is largely the result of three factors, viz. the availability of food, the purchasing power of the community and its level of education. The effect of agricultural development in the homelands on each of the factors is briefly examined. Agricultural development and improved nutrition are seen as parallel developments governed by the level of education of the population.
