Citation : Govinden, N.; Rajkomar, B.; Berthelot, P. B.; Mundil, K.; Agriculture in Rodrigues. II. Zoning of agricultural lands; 1996
Abstract : Good agricultural land is very scarce in Rodrigues. It is very important to identify the areas that have to be protected from encroachment from non-agricultural activities. For this, it was first necessary to update the existing land use map which dates back to 1965. This study shows that much of the land that used to be cropped on terraces in the drier zones are no longer cultivated. With the help of farmers and local agricultural extension officers a zoning of agricultural lands was prepared and classified into 9 zones on the basis of altitude, rainfall, topography and agricultural potential, describing their characteristics and uses to which each could be put. The zoning of agricultural lands should be useful in the preparation of the national physical development plan, in the allocation of land leases and in advising farmers on the sustainable use of land.

Title : Agriculture in Rodrigues. IV. Farming systems and their dynamics
Year of publication : 1996

Citation : Berthelot, P. B.; Mundil, K.; Rajkomar, B.; Govinden, N.; Agriculture in Rodrigues. IV. Farming systems and their dynamics; 1996
Abstract : Despite its small size, the island of Rodrigues displays a diversity of farming systems which can at times be complex. Thus, households pursue a mix of agricultural activities in different agro-ecological zones simultaneously, while often earning off-farm income. On the basis of a Rapid Rural Appraisal, three main farming systems have been identified. This paper described the main characteristics of each farming system, analyses the major hindrances besetting them, and identifies farmers' strategies to ease system constraints. The contribution of the respective farming systems to the future development of the agricultural sector of Rodrigues is then examined and conditions for ensuring such contributions are identified. The dynamics of Rodrigues farming systems are also emphasized and the necessity for targeting specific recommendations underlined.

Title : Agriculture in Rodrigues. V. Institutional improvements

Keywords : AGRICULTURAL POLICY; CAPACITY BUILDING; MARKETING; MSIRI STAFF; FC; RODRIGUES;
Citation : Mundil, K.; Berthelot, P. B.; Govinden, N.; Rajkomar, B.; Agriculture in Rodrigues. V. Institutional improvements; 1996
Abstract : With the take over of the Agricultural Services in Rodrigues, it is very important to consolidate the technical and administrative capacity of that ministry and of its services to meet the challenge of developing the agricultural sector in Rodrigues. In the light of a field study, this paper proposes an alternative integrated approach, and the setting up of a mechanism to supply inputs and services - credits, fertilizers, seeds, pesticides and mechanization - so as to overcome the numerous technical problems identified. The marketing and processing of produce will require increasing attention as problems of production are gradually solved.
