Two Steps Back, One Step Forward: Cuba's national policy for alternative agriculture
In November 1992, a delegation travelled to Cuba to report on changes that had taken place in Cuban agriculture since the 1990 collapse of its trading relations with the socialist bloc. Word had filtered out that Cuba was in the process of a national switch to local-input and organic farming because of a cessation of imports of agrochemicals. This paper summarises the delegation's findings.
