Title:Management of small holder irrigation schemes in Zimbabwe: the committees approach
Author:Pazvakavambwa, S.
Book title:African regional symposium on small holder irrigation: 5-7 September 1984, University of Zimbabwe, Harare, Zimbabwe
Geographic term:Zimbabwe
Subjects:small farms
Abstract:The smallholder irrigation schemes in Zimbabwe have been established to provide food security in low rainfall areas. These schemes have served a well-deserved purpose, except that there was no parallel development of the farmer to enable a complete takeover of the schemes. The result has been that the schemes and the irrigators themselves have remained dependent on government support. There has thus been a noticeable lack of personal commitment and innovativeness. Ref.
