    Abstract

    Organic agriculture has developed over the past fifty years and has become a major international phenomenon in the last 15-20 years with the development of significant international trade, regulation and certification. The participation of Sub-Saharan African nations in this sector is relatively recent, though countries such as Kenya, South Africa and Uganda, have made rapid progress in entering the international market. Many West African countries, however, lack relevant expertise and most staff in higher education has been trained exclusively in conventional agriculture
