ABSTRACT
Considers family land as part of the small holder sector, reflecting problems such as small size and debt. The author argues that because family land is an intrinsic component of the small holding sector, the distinction between legal and non-legal tenure needs to be revised. She concludes that economic pressures have led to the sale of family land, causing a decline in agricultural production.
