Abstract
While it is conceivable that the groundnut scheme may prove to be a brilliant short-cut towards self-government in East Africa, it is preferable to look at it now as an experiment in agricultural production, which, we hope, will greatly assist the inhabitants of other parts of the world in their search for better food. Meanwhile we must look for ways in which the African peasant can raise the producing power of his soil, for he, too, is in dire need of food. On a good soil under a well-distributed rainfall his axe and his hoe have caused alarming increases in population, and in some areas pressure on the land has reached a stage where the feeding of the people by the people is a matter for grave anxiety.
