Film trailer - Cultivating Unemployment

The Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) has just produced a trailer for a forthcoming video based on a case study from their DEGRP project. The trailer explores Weenen, KwaZulu Natal, a vegetable growing district surrounded by traditional settlements and a nearby township. In this area, South African industry and agriculture are shedding jobs and smallscale and largescale farmers face significant challenges. In a system where the agricultural value chains are highly concentrated the research asks: What kind of agriculture can create jobs?
