Abstract:This paper discusses contract farming in Zimbabwe, presenting case studies of sugar, tea and cotton production. Three examples of contract farming are examined: cotton and tea produced by outgrowers linked to nucleus estates owned and managed by the State, and sugarcane grown by large and small planters contracted to deliver their total output to the country's two privately-owned mills. These studies represent State and private contracting, irrigated and dryland production and marketing channels stretching from State marketing boards to private companies. Bibliogr., notes.
