Abstract:Land evaluation for measuring soil capability for agriculture is a complicated problem in Rukwa Region. With this paper the author attempts to cover three important facets of land evaluation: 1. All published information and field observation by the author, that could assist in land evaluation of the region, are introduced; 2. A semi-quantitative technique has been applied on the gathered information to establish capability classes relevant for the study area; 3. The attention of the human planner is drawn to what could be done for each capability class in the long and short range planning of the region. Ref., tab., sum.
