The sugar industry in Fiji shows that export crop production can satisfy equity criteria without sacrificing efficiency, growth or rising real incomes. This beneficial outcome results from a small-farm structure maintained by government leasing of land; employment intensity linked to the prohibition of mechanical cane harvesting technology; and a high grower share in sales revenue, assured by the high degree of grower participation in policy-making institutions. While Fiji is a special case, it may provide lessons for other countries. -Author
