Title:Development of small holder irrigation in Tanzania: problems and prospects
Author:Mrema, Geoffrey C.
Book title:African regional symposium on small holder irrigation: 5-7 September 1984, University of Zimbabwe, Harare, Zimbabwe
Geographic term:Tanzania
Subjects:small farms
Abstract:The development of small holder irrigation in Tanzania over the past three decades is reviewed with specific reference to three government-aided and constructed schemes. Their performance over the past three decades has been disappointing; the main problems have been the poor technical expertise of both the farmers and the management staff. It is argued that irrigation, small holder in particular, is unlikely to be viable unless the technical and management skills required for efficient operation are also made available. Ref.
