Homboy area and small holder banana cultivation in the lower Juba Valley and assesment of agricultural benefits, Main Report

(Extract from the Summary) The objective of the present study is to update the 1980 feasibility study in the light of the changed conditions in the Juba valley. In particular it is assumed that water regulation of the-river is achieved by Bardheere dam and that the farming system is to be based on smallholders rather than settlers. Particular emphasis is placed by the Terms of Reference on the following aspects: br - cropping pattern, particularly in view of the perennial supplies afforded by Bardheere dambr - farm budgets, including livestockbr - irrigation efficiencies, water management and water users' associations br; b Annexesbr Annex 1 Homboy Feasibility Studybr Annex I Smallholder Banana Development br Annex III: Assessment of Agricultural and Flood control Benefits br Album of drawings br

Homboy area and small holder banana cultivation in the lower Juba Valley and assesment of agricultural benefits, Feasibility study

(Extract from Introduction) The project, as proposed in the 1980 study by YTS/MMP, comprised 8 850 ha net of irrigated land supplemented by 2 675 ha of rainfed land at full development. The rainfed areas were not considered suitable for surface irrigation due primarily to topographic limitations. The scheme was designed to form the basis of the resettlement of nomads temporarily located at Dujuuma with a holding size of 1 ha per family. Overall management of the project would be by the Settlement Development Agency (SDA).

Homboy Irrigated Settlement Project, Volume 2 Physical Planning

(Extract from the Introduction)BR The present report describes the methods, findings and conclusions of the soil survey investigations, forming part of the Phase II studies which were carried out in the Homboy Irrigated Settlement Project Area. Chapter 1 gives an account of the general natural and human resources of the area and Chapter 2 describes the soils in more detail, drawing on information gained from the present survey and investigations. The principles and methods employed for arriving at the land suitability classification for the proposed development are described in Chapter 3, along with general guidelines as to suitability for rain fed agriculture. The findings, conclusions and recommendations of this study are presented in the andlsquoSummary and Conclusionsandrsquoat the beginning of the report.Br The Homboy Scheme is a large and complex development. In addition to extensive civil works the lives of more than 25,000 settlers presently residing at Dujuuma and over 8,000 local residents within the project area will be deeply affected. The physical planning necessary to ensure a smooth yet rapid development, while at the sane time, minimising hardship and unnecessary disturbance, has been studied in detail, and our proposals are presented in this volume. Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 cover the important aspects of villagisation, the relocation of the settler-s and the infrastructure necessary to support both the domestic and scheme management requirements. A summary of costs is also included. The Annex describes the main construction works and again costs are included.
