Production in the remote areas of Western and Southern Sudan is subsistence-oriented. Altogether an output of t of vegetables can be estimated for , but production has been increasing steadily. Table 3 presents the area, yield per unit area and season of production of the important vegetables produced in Sudan. Shifting cultivation has been practiced in Europe until the middle of the 20th century, and the method is still prevailing in many tropical countries worldwide. 15% of the population in the Asia-Pacific region is considered “forest-dependent,” and many of these are shifting cultivators. 8 Shifting.

Traditional shifting cultivation, agroforestry, which is the dominant crop production system practiced in the tropics (Oba et al., ), is the typical Acacia-based farming system in the gum belt of Sudan (Hammad, ).

Management of gum production falls into one of two systems; hashab owner or hashab renter (Elkhidir et al., ; ILO, ).

These misconceptions and their policy implications need to be challenged. Sudan - Sudan - Agriculture, forestry, and fishing: Sudan’s main crops include cotton, peanuts (groundnuts), sesame, gum arabic, sorghum, and sugarcane.

The main subsistence crops are sorghum and millet, with smaller amounts of wheat, corn, and barley. There are four distinct subsectors in Sudanese agriculture: modern irrigated farming, most of which is carried out with mechanized.

As the authors of the Thai case study point out, ‘[i]n this ‘dual economy’, shifting cultivation and paddy fields are providing a safety net that allows engagement in more risky, cash-oriented production’ (p.

Shifting cultivation is an agricultural system in which plots of land are cultivated temporarily, then abandoned while post-disturbance fallow vegetation is allowed to freely grow while the cultivator moves on to another plot.

The period of cultivation is usually terminated when the soil shows signs of exhaustion or, more commonly, when the field is overrun by weeds. The history of shifting cultivation is as old as the history of agricul­ture itself. On the basis of archaeological evidences and radio-carbon dating, the origin of shifting cultivation could be traced back to about BC in the Neolithic period which witnessed the remarkable and revolutionary change in man’s mode of production of food as from hunter and gatherer he became food producer.

Crop cultivation was divided between a modern, market-oriented sector comprising mechanised, large-scale irrigated and rainfed farming (mainly in central Sudan) and small-scale farming following traditional practices that was carried on in the other parts of the country where rainfall or other water sources were sufficient for cultivation.

The Sudan covers an area of more than million km 2 and is as big as India. The total cultivable area, however, is approximately 80 million ha, and only 10 percent, i.e. 8 million ha, is under cultivation at present. The climate is mostly arid in the northern part, extending to subtropical or tropical in the south.

Shifting cultivation: definition, basic features and types. Shifting cultivation is a low-input system of arable farming that is practice in large areas of the humid and sub-humid tropics.

The major characteristics of shifting cultivation are summarized and briefly examined. It seems that the trees left on the shifting cultivation farms are mainly those of direct utilitarian value to the farmer.

laevis, the most abundant tree in the shifting cultivation farmlands, is a medicinal plant while E. guineensis (the second most abundant tree) is the main source of vegetable oil in the rain forest region of West Africa. Shifting cultivation causes a high national waste as it converts the green land into a barren land.

The land takes many years to replenish just at the cost of providing yield for 2 to 3 years. It upsets the ecological balance as it disturbs many eco-systems of that region due to. This became particularly evident when Hurtt et al. included shifting cultivation in a global harmonization of land use states and transitions from past to future: they found only one (hand-drawn) global map of shifting cultivation, in a book on economic geography dating from At the same time, shifting cultivation was one of the most.

Shifting cultivation is one of the oldest forms of subsistence agriculture and is still practised by millions of poor people in the tropics. Typically it involves clearing land (often forest) for the growing of crops for a few years, and then moving on to new sites, leaving the earlier ground fallow to regain its soil fertility.

This book brings together the best of science and farmer.Shifting cultivation, sometimes called swidden or slash and burn, is commonly found throughout the Amazon and other tropical regions worldwide. Shifting cultivation systems are designed to adapt to the soil and climatic characteristics of the Amazon basin- low .
