The ability to attain national and household food security rests w'ilh the agricultural sector which employs 70-80 percent of the total labour force of the SADCC region and contributes some 35 percent of the region’s Gross National Product. Agriculture also generates 30 percent of the region’s foreign exchange. To guarantee food security for the region’s rapidly growing population requires that agriculture continue to increase its output by increasing its productivity or expanding the land area under cultivation. This latter option is becoming unavailable in several countries within SADCC as all arable land is already being farmed.
