Abstract:Despite the fact that the homelands are overcrowded, some 20 to 30% of the arable land available to blacks is left uncultivated every year. For the purpose of this article, a total of 130 household heads were interviewed in five different districts of KwaZulu in order to establish the reasons why they left either part or all of their land uncultivated. Attention is paid to the nature and extent of the changes which must be brought about if people are to be made able and willing to cultivate the areas now unutilised and to the costs to KwaZulu, and to South Africa as a whole, of creating a situation in which all suitable land will be cultivated.
