DOMINANT CROPS IN THE NILE BASIN FARMING SYSTEMS  

This poster demonstrates the regional variations in dominant crops typically found throughout the Nile Basin. It aims to illustrate the cropping complexities of the Nile’s farming systems.

The poster describes typical crop occurrences and brings this in relation to the natural resource base conditions. A “regional landscape transect” is used to simplify the main factors of topography, climate systems and rainfall.

Where this poster expressestypes and complexities of cropping systems, it does not provide information about the actual intensities of cultivation.
