Take home message……..

  • Investment in agriculture steadily been declining in real terms since the 1980’s.

  • Increase in net farm income since 2007 has not changed investment trend.

  • Increased uncertainty around labour situation/regulatory environment and land reform major factors deterring investment.

  • Changed patterns of investment (mechanization) will in all probability also be a reality.
