The more farmers there are, the less there is to eat; this is an historic pattern that has become an economic law worldwide, and still describes African reality today. Most agrarian countries, where agriculture is (one of) the most important contributors to national income, are characterised by serious food insecurity and poverty. In such countries, the ratio of consumers: producers is unfavourable and consequently farmers’ incomes are too low to invest in more productive systems.
