Professor Edward Ayensu, a leading Ghanaian plant biologist and a member of
several international organizations which deal with agricultural issues in
Africa, talks about the problem of food aid dependency, how it has affected
food production in Africa and the ways in which those involved can and are
working to change the situation. The film also examines the problem of feeding
the growing urban centres in Africa, whether African farmers should be
concentrating their efforts on food crops or cash crops, and ways to break the
cycle of dependency.
