Description/Abstract: 

Agriculture as the backbone of Namibia’s economy has a major role to play in achieving vision 2030. however, to be able to make a significant contribution towards the growth of the economy and thus wealth creation, agricultural production/output has to increase manifold. For the realisation of such an increase the following crucial issues have to be addressed. subsistence farming should become commercialised, e.g. landownership in some form or other should be allocated to individuals, under-utilised areas should be developed and put into production and the problem of bush encroachment should be addressed and solved at national level.
