Abstract

A study of two villages in the Mopane district of Limpopo has shown that indigenous knowledge integrated with scientific know-how can optimise agricultural production and help alleviate poverty in agrarian households. TIM HART and INEKE VORSTER compiled a valuable record of indigenous (or local) knowledge relating to the production of African vegetable crops.
