Soil survey

The soil survey in the North-West Region, which was begun in October 1980 and March 1981, covers an area of about 350,000 ha, in which the soil and land were mapped at a scale of 1/500,000.The survey was carried by SOGREAH consulting Engineers on behalf of the Democratic Republic of Somalia to study and prepare: -A soil classification Map -A land suitability map for integrated rainfed cultivation inorder to asses the area's suitability for agricultural development The aim of the study is to develop irrigated and rainfed agriculture in the North-west Region of the country The region of coverage extends between latitudes 9 and 11 30' North and longitudes 42 30' and 45 East and is characterised by a climate that is arid (coastal plain) to semiarid(plateau) and a rainfall regime which shows marked differences from one point to another (cf. report on hydrology and climatology), with mean annual precipitation ranging from 50 mm (coastal plain) t o 500 mm (plateau).

Hydrological data collection and upgrading of the national hydrometric network On Juba and Shebelli rivers, also the in-service training of the field operation staff - Main Report

The main objectives of the Hydrometry Project were to try and re-rate all the National Hydrometric stations on the Jubba and Shebelli rivers to maintain a reliable and continous hydrological database to ensure reliable calculations and planning of development projects in aid of the future of agriculture in Somalia.The Project covers the area of Somalia dependant upon the Jubba and Shebelli rivers for its water. These two rivers drain the eastern slopes of the Ethiopian Plateau to the west of Somalia, and are the only sources of surface water which is available for large scale irrigation development in Somalia.

Shabelle Hydrometric Data

(Extract from preface)The Hydrometry Project TCP/SOM/8906 was born after the visit to Somalia of the Hydrologist Jean C. Henry in 1979, to evaluate irrigation potential along the Juba and shebelli rivers. During this study the Hydrometric data base was questioned as regards both its validity and representativity. The first steps taken to rectify the situation was the formulation of the Hydrometry Project and its implementation in January 1980. The main objectives of the Hydrometry Project were to try and re-rate all the National Hydrometric stations on the Jubba and Shebelli rivers.

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).
