    With 60-65% of the world’s uncultivated arable land and 10% of renewable freshwater resources, Africa’s persistent failure to realize its agricultural potential should temper any optimism that things will change for the better.

    What causes the African farmers to eat their seed is that free food is delivered periodically. In insufficient quantity to avert starvation but in sufficient quantity to destroy the price of local food.
