Sustainable agriculture in subsistence economies: some of the overlooked research issues based on Tanzania experience

Sustainable agriculture in subsistence economies: some of the overlooked research issues based on Tanzania experience

African Review 23(1/2): 62-80

An examination is presented of crop production at subsistence level in Tanzania, in the context that agricultural practices should meet the needs of the present population without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The paper reviews some of the basic characteristics of the Tanzanian agricultural sector, and then discusses the concept of sustainability. A discussion is presented of the possible research agenda for sustainable development.
