Abstract

Ghana and Kenya constitute two of the most prominent cases of the agricultural development in colonial Africa. In the one case, producer interests became paramount in the colonial period; in the other, the interests of producers were sacrificed to those of other sectors. This paper examines the divergent patterns of growth of commercial agriculture in Ghana and Kenya and tries to account for the contrasting outcomes of the process of agrarian development.
