dc.description.abstractThe study examines the ways in which peasant agriculture has changed in south Pare between 1920 and 1969, and the factors which have promoted these changes. The process of change is based on Ruthenberg's (1964) framework for agricultural change in Tanzania, and is presented in three periods. The first period, 1920-45, is characterized by slow agricultural progress concentrating on the development of rice and cotton, and on soil conservation. The second period, 1946-60, is characterized by planned development programs aimed at improving peasant agriculture, the growth of co-operative movements and the development of coffee as an important cash prop. The third period, 1861-69, is characterized by the improvement of animal husbandry and the expansion and development of additional cash crops. The study shows that agricultural development was delayed by shortages of finance, and by the outbreak of the Second world War. It further shows that the introduction and development of cash crops was stimulated by the colonial government need to raise taxes and by the demand for certain agricultural products during the war.en_US
