Integrated agricultural design, Angola

The project:

TerraVerde developed a series of planning schemes for integrated agriculture production and
agro-processing projects. Planning included crop choice, cropping pattern, agro-technology,
irrigation, machinery, choice of livestock and processing plant type and capacity. Economic
analyses were done for each scheme.
The field crops selected were primarily maize, cassava, and beans, as well as open field and
covered vegetables. Livestock included: beef cattle, dairy cattle, goats, broilers and laying
hens.

 

In all, 7 schemes were developed, each for a specific provincial or governmental project, in
various sizes, ranging from 350 to 2,000 Ha.

 

Results:

The project will contribute to self-sufficiency and fresh, high-value products for
domestic consumption. The project will offer hundreds of direct and indirect job opportunities
in the area.

 

Project investment: $5M –$20M, depending on the farm size
