Soils and land suitability for arable farming of the Gaborone area by B. G. Moganane Download PDF EPUB FB2

Land suitability assessment of the proposed uranium mining site was made to mitigate the possible environmental hazards arising from its potential use.

The FAO framework of land evaluation and guidelines for land use planning were employed to assess the land suitability for arable, pasture/grazing and forestry by: 1.

The low level of horticultural production in Botswana is explained by the fact that there was a high involvement of the older generation of small-scale farmers who mainly produced for household.

In this study, soils of the Gamodubu area, in the Kweneng District, Botswana, were analysed to determine their suitability for arable farming. Soil organic matter (SOM) was estimated by. The city of Gaborone ( population: ,) is the largest settlement and capital city of Botswana.

Although the city's population seems small by international standards, its problems with resources, especially land, resulting from its fast growth, differ from large cities only in magnitude, not in kind (Molebatsi,Mosha, ).Between andits annual Cited by: 4.

The competing demand on soils and the degradation on the environment necessitated the present study. The objectives of the study therefore was to assess some of the methods used in land suitability evaluation and toFile Size: 1MB.

Botswana arable land was at level of thousand hectares inunchanged from the previous year. Arable land is the land under temporary agricultural crops (multiple-cropped areas are counted only once), temporary meadows for mowing or pasture, land under market and kitchen gardens and land temporarily fallow (less than five years).

The abandoned land. Until now land evaluation in Botswana has not been well integrated within the land use planning procedures.

Various ad hoc methods have been used to estimate the capability or suitability of land for a limited number of major land uses (e.g. rainfed arable File Size: 1MB.

Due to COVID, orders may be delayed. Global Perspective of Arable Soils. In Julythe world population reached billion and the global arable land area is estimated as billion hectares ( billion acres) This implies that arable land per capita on a global basis is.

To meet growing population demands for food and other agricultural commodities, agricultural land-use intensification and extensification seems to be increasing in the Abbay (Upper Blue Nile) basin in Ethiopia.

However, the amount, location and degree of suitability of the basin for agriculture seem not well studied and/or documented. From global data sources, Cited by: Introduction Botswana is a land locked country covering an area ofsquare kilometers B’Botswana’s clilimate is semii‐arid.

% of the soils were of moderate suitability which only % of the areas had soil of marginal suitability. Soil moisture content. Using data on soils, topography and crop type, we developed a spatially explicit index of the suitability for groundwater recharge of land in all agricultural regions in California.

We identified million acres of agricultural land statewide as having Excellent or Good potential for groundwater recharge.

Crop production is hampered by traditional farming methods, recurrent drought, erosion, and disease.

Most of the land under cultivation is in the eastern region. The principal crops for domestic use are sorghum, corn, and millet. The results of qualitative land suitability classification shows that, most areas in the settlement fall under moderate suitability (S 2) class with a small proportion of high suitability (S 1).

The study established that by far, Kyangwali Refugee Settlement is largely suitable for arable farming. However, land shortages and soil exhaustion. The selection of good land for farming is as old as agricultural land use.

Land speculation by both urban and rural dwellers has increased the pace of encroachment of built up areas into former arable and grazing lands.
