The multifaceted nature of agricultural innovation makes it evident that technological, industrial, human and economic factors define and redefine agricultural innovation within new cultural and technological contexts. Juxtaposing the African condition to the earlier understanding of the cross-cultural dimensions of agricultural innovation, this paper proposes that technological insufficiencies in Africa shall necessitate the creation of an enabling environment which utilises an indigenous approach to agricultural innovation. Agricultural innovation ought to use intellectual capital based on human potential and indigenous approaches to enhance long term economic growth in the African context especially in the area of trade liberalisation and agricultural exports both within the region and outside the continent of Africa.
