Here are “somethings to PONDER on !!??
The UNITED NATIONS “Food & Agricultural” 1975 YEAR BOOK stated the following FACTS
1.) RHODESIA was RANKED 2nd. the WORLD in terms of YIELDS / hectare for a.) Maize Production !
b.) Soya Beans
c.) Winter Wheat
d.) Ground Nuts
AND 3rd. in WORLD for cotton production !!
In a “COMBINED RANKING” for ALL of these FOOD CROPS …. RHODESIA was ranked # 1 (Number ONE !) in the WORLD !!
Then comes …. VIRGINIA TOBACCO ….. RHODESIA was RANKED # 1 in the WORLD in her QUALITY & in her YIELDS / ha.
Although in QUANTITY of V. Tobacco Rhodesia came in 2nd !!
Rhodesia “held” the WORLD RECORD for 2.) Maize yields / ha.
3.) Mazoe Citrus Estate was the SINGLE largest ORANGE producer !
4.) Chisumbanje Cotton Estate held the WORLD RECORD for “Raw Cotton” = 4000 kgs / hectare …. NOTABLY B’coz there was NO CROP RESPONSE to ANY ADDED chemical fertilizer !!
Rhodesia’s MAJOR source of FOREIGN CURRENCY “EARNINGS” was from AGRICULTURE …. WAY AHEAD of mineral exports !! (i.e. Diamonds / Gold / Platinum / Nickel / Lithium / Emeralds etc.
41 years LATER …. ZIMBABWE is “rated” among the POOREST Countries on this PLANET !
