VISIONING AFRICAN FUTURE FARMS

VISIONING AFRICAN FUTURE FARMS

 

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Africa’s agriculture research & development has come a long way since the ‘take-off’ decades of the post-colonial era. Slow and slowed further by internecine conflicts as well (political-military), conflicts that were bred by the polarity games of the Western oligarchy aimed at controlling Africans in the long term, science R&D as a whole sputtered across the…

Erle Frayne Argonza



Magandang Hapon! Good afternoon!
