Northern Rangeland Development Project, Report on soil in the project area

This is an investigation report of the soils of the Project area. Basic soil tests were performed from a base at the National Rangelands agency offices in Burao. Tests undertaken in the laboratory were:ol li Moisture content /li liAtterberg Limits /li liParticle size distribution (wet and dry sieve and hydrometer sedimentation). /li; li2.5kg rammer compaction test. /li; /ol Tests undertaken in the field were:ol liIn-situ densities by sand replacement/li li Water quality tests (pH, conductivity,hardness, alkalinity, chloride, sulphate, nitrate, ammonia and phosphorous). Some of these were done in the laboratory, others in the field/li; /ol

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).

Homeboy irrigated settlement project Volume 4: Main Report

The principle objective of the Homboy Irrigation Scheme is to provide all participants with a permanent abode and the resources to sustain a reasonable standard of living. Since the potential participants, (i.e. the existing farmers, sedentary and semi sedentary families of nomadic origin, e.g. nomads from Dujuuma and possibly refugees from northern Somalia) represent a wide range of ability, experience and aptitude for irrigated arable farming, determining a farm organisation settlement suited to everyone and achieving this objective will not be easy. In proposing a form of development we have taken into account the human resources involved, the need for time to adapt and acclimatise to a more disciplined way of Life and the policies of the Government towards the disposition of these human resources. Three mainframes of development, a state farm, village collectives and cooperatives within village blocks have been considered.br The report consists of the following volumes:br strongVolume 1 :Soils/strong strongVolume 2 :Physical Planning/strong blockquote Part 1 : Villagisationbr Part 2 : Relocationbr Part 3 : Groundwaterbr Part 4 : Infrastructurebr Annex : Main Construction Works and Costs/blockquote strongVolume 3 - Agricultural Planning/strong blockquote Part 1: Agriculturebr Part 2: Organisation, Management and Implementationbr Part 3 : Operation and Maintenance of the Irrigation System.br Part 4 : Economic and Financial Studies /blockquote In addition to these Volumes, a number of supporting contract documents and an album of engineering drawings have already been submitted.br
