  1. African –grown cash crops would be prone to disease which would easily spread to their farms.
  2. Africans lack of knowledge in cash crops cultivation would lower the quality of cash crops particularly coffee- hence threatening the settlers share in the world market.
  3. African labour would not be available for European farms, since they would earn money for taxes from the sale of their own cash crops.
  4. Africans would bring unnecessary competition to a market that should be monopolized by Europeans.
