INSTITUTIONAL REFORM IN THE COMMERCIAL AGRICULTURAL SECTOR OF SOUTH AFRICA: AN INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW OF PAST AND PRESENT STRUCTURES, AND AN ASSESSMENT OF ISSUES AND OPTIONS FOR PRIVATE BASED REFORM INITIATIVES

The changing political economy and present structure and performance of the commercial agricultural sector in South Africa necessitates change. An institutional approach is adopted to review the origin of past and present institutions and organizations in the commercial sector. Private based reform initiatives are focused upon as one of the possible processes through reform in the sector can be undertaken. The private based reform initiatives undertaken in the sugar sub sector are analyzed from a situation, structure and performance perspective in attempt to explain the origins and outcomes of these initiatives. Successful lessons from the case study are examined with two other private based reform initiatives, namely sharecropping and employee share ownership programs, in an attempt to assess their suitability for inducing institutional reform in other sub sectors and situations.
