Agrica’s Broken Development Model in Tanzania
In conclusion, this report illustrates the difficulties in creating beneficial synergies and balance between the interests of smallholder farmers and those of large-scale agribusinesses. It critically questions the role of large-scale farms in agricultural development as they tend to create more problems than they solve, even when they attempt to include small-scale farmers in their strategy. The findings presented in this report cast serious doubt on the substantial aid money directed towards supporting corporate-led agricultural development. This is especially relevant in the broader Tanzanian development context where large-scale agribusinesses are envisioned greater roles.
