000156671 520__ $$aThis article explores the determinants of inequality in productivity in South African
agriculture and differentiates between small-scale and large-scale farms in the sugarcane
sector. The findings suggest that inequality slows down productivity and that land
redistribution slightly improves it. Farm type-specific effects reveal that redistribution per se
does not lead to higher production, but only improves production for those who farm the land
effectively and go on to harvest the crop. Much of the difference in land productivity between
the two farm types arises from disparity in input use, particularly fertilizer and irrigation.
Some mutually beneficial collaboration between the two types is possible, skewed in favor of
small farms. For small-scale farmers, access to land is necessary but not sufficient: other
factors such as fertilizer, irrigation, chemicals and human capital (particularly literacy) must
be prioritized. Any policy that creates conflicts between the two types will jeopardize
agricultural production, to the detriment of small-scale producers.
