Abstract [en]

Precolonial African agricultural history is notoriously under-researched and the research that actually exists is poorly synthesized. Therefore, it is still possible to publish research aiming to explain the growth or lack of growth in precolonial Africa without much consideration of the actual development of farming on the continent during the precolonial period. Whether environmental constraints or institutional failure are advanced as explanations for Africa’s present poverty, such claims are often made either without any references at all to African agricultural history or with only anecdotal evidence. But crops, agricultural technology, agrarian landscapes, farming systems and the social organization of farming changed in Africa over time, as elsewhere in the world. This chapter presents evidence for six different regional cases of agricultural intensification in the period 1500–1800.
