English term or phrase:bread basket
For the last 20 years Zimbabwe has been one of Southern Africa ’s most prosperous countries: it was the world's third biggest source of tobacco and a bread basket for surrounding countries which often depended on food imports. However, the fast track land reform implemented by the Government implying the seizure of almost all white-owned commercial agricultural land, with the stated aim of benefiting black farmers, led to sharp falls in production. By 2003, more than 1/3 of Zimbabweans were thought to be at risk of famine.
