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 !!
(An ASTONISHING … FACT !!)
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.
NOW
41 years LATER …. ZIMBABWE is “rated” among the POOREST Countries on this PLANET !
