DOES SOUTH AFRICAN AGRICULTURE RECEIVE TOO MUCH SUPPORT? -A COMPARISON

1bis article puts agricultural support in South Africa in perspective with some selected countries of the developed world. The comparison of support data between countries,bearing in mind the recognised limits of these indicaton;, gives an indication of the relative extent of agricultural support in South Africa. With the exception of Australia and New Zealand, South Africa had a relatively low degree of support compared to the other selected developed countries. However, bearing in mind the low per capita income of the majority of South Africans, the question still remains to what extent South Africans can afford even the current relatively low levels of support within the agricultural sector.
