Has expropriation without compensation debate started negatively affecting investment in SA agricultural sector?

We typically use the Agbiz/IDC Agribusiness Confidence Index to gauge the health of the South African agricultural sector, as well as the potential investment path. Of late, a number of commentaries have surfaced arguing that the discussions about the proposed expropriation without compensation have not negatively affected investment in the agricultural sectors, suggesting that investment has actually increased over time. This argument leans on investment in JSE food listed companies, which we believe would not be an ideal measure of observing investment in farming. - Wandile Sihlobo, Agbiz Head: Agribusiness Research and Dr John Purchase, Agbiz CEO
