Publication Year:
2010
Abstract:

Namibia is a semi-arid country in which 70% of its two million inhabitants depend on agriculture. Traditionally, forms of agriculture are subsistence-oriented and comprise livestock keeping, in the North combined with rain-fed staple crop production. This report deals with the recent development of small-scale irrigation farming (SSIF) and production of Horticultural Fresh Products (HFP) in the communal areas of the Kavango and Omusati Regions in the North of the country.
