Land not suitable for main agricultural crops
Te suitability of different land systems for various agricultural products taken from the RePPProT (Re- gional Physical Planning Programme for Transmigration) project of the 1980’s. Each land system was assessed as Suitable, Unsuitable, or Unsuitable without inputs for a number of commodities. Landsys- tems were mapped at a scale of 1:250,000.
