The largest reserves of potential arable land still available in Zambia are in the high rainfall area comprising one third of the country's land area. Until 1975 this region was regarded as marginal land unsuited for agricultural production because of the inherent soil related constraints for agricultural production. In spite of this there is now an increasing interest and demand to develop and intensify agricultural production in the high rainfall area, because of an ever-increasing population, erratic rains in the other regions of the country, coupled with the growing food requirements.
