There aren’t many academic papers that present a comprehensive picture of the change in pace of the nature of production and productivity growth in South African agriculture during the 20th century like that of the late Dr George Frederick (Frikkie) Liebenberg’s PhD thesis.

I will try to write short blog entries and highlight few interesting treats within the coming weeks. For now — here are three outstanding charts from the second chapter of the thesis – covering the structural changes in the South African agricultural economy between 1910 and 2010.
