Abstract:Evidence from research on environmental management has revealed that areas with rugged and contrasted relief and high anthropogenic imprints are potentially ecological risk zones. This is also the case in the western highlands of Cameroon. Research carried out in the Mezam-Ngoketunjia area reveals that farming systems have evolved from subsistence farming, through cash crop or market-oriented farming to highly priced intensive gardening. This article shows how alternating cropping systems, while conserving soil fertility, can bring about increased yields and a sustainable use of the environment. Bibliogr., sum. in English and French.
