Nearly 80% of the world’s poorest inhabitants live in rural areas and labour in agriculture. Because they lack the productive assets or infrastructure needed to market their produce, strategies intended to encourage agribusinesses-led development of such markets rank high on many policy agendas. Still, systematic studies of the efficacy of these policies remain scarce. This column examines the impact that promoting agribusiness-participation in crop markets has made in Kenya, and concludes that such policies are no panacea for low agricultural incomes.
