Title:Cropping patterns and productivity on small holder irrigation schemes
Author:Rukuni, MandivambaISNI
Book title:African regional symposium on small holder irrigation: 5-7 September 1984, University of Zimbabwe, Harare, Zimbabwe
Geographic term:Zimbabwe
Subjects:small farms
Abstract:This paper discusses crops grown on small holder irrigation schemes in Zimbabwe. Differences in cropping patterns exist between various types and provinces. The paper presents data showing productivity of schemes at national level. These data show levels of formal marketing of produce by farmers, and indicate that food crops are frequently marketed through local informal channels. The effect of plot size on cropping patterns and yields is discussed, based on a case study investigation. Ref.
