(Extract From Introduction)This land evaluation of the Farjano Settlement Project in the Lower Shabeelle Region of Somalia examined 16 000 hectares of alluvial soils. The evaluation was requested by UNHCR with the aim of locating land suitable for semimechanised rainfed (dryland) agriculture on which refugee settlers will become farmers, under the direction of a.farm management system that provides land preparation and planting services. The evaluation was also to examine the land suitability for settlement location, forestry and small-scale irrigation. A topographic survey was to be carried out to provide a contoured base map, and an additional topographicai survey was requested of the Farjano village irrigated farm (Sheikh Mohammed Hikam).
