Sweet oranges, uncertain markets, and bitter losses: A study of small scale citrus farming in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.


This study examines how global forces influence the activities of small-scale producers in developing countries based on an empirical case in the Eastern Cape, South Africa of small-scale citrus producers who have become part of the global citrus chain. The South African dualistic system of food production, and the counter- seasonal advantage South Africa has among major citrus producers are used as a context for the study.
