Rural Life and Agriculture Tour Low Productivity of Traditional Farming Methods Next issue - The low fertility, resulting from the acidic soils in the region, does not allow farms to be permanently located. Instead forms of shifting cultivation are adopted. The most common is Chitemene, a type of slash and burn method of cultivation. With this type of land management the time that the land is used to grow crops is small compared with the time that it lies fallow. Rural Lifestyles The villagers cut branches from trees in the area that they are going plant their crops. The branches are then laid out to dry. Before the rains start in November they are gathered up, heaped where the land is to be cropped, and burnt. The crops are then grown in the ash-enriched soil. The plot will be farmed intensively for 4-5 years growing maize and other crops such as ground nuts, millet, and beans. After that it is abandoned and left fallow for 20-30 years during which time another field is opened up for cultivation. It has been estimated that Chitemene can only support 2-4 people per square km. It also relies on a high level of rainfall to guarantee the long-term fertility of the land is maintained. In addition there is an obvious need for trees.

Agriculture And Rural Affairs Policy - Green Party agriculture must play its part in New Zealand being early 1998 brought many farmersand rural settlements to used in conjunction with a Quality of life index. http://www.greens.org.nz/searchdocs/policy4756.html
Extractions: To propose amendments contact the National Policy Convenors for details, firstname.lastname@example.org. The Green Party is committed to practices that promote strong rural communities and strong rural economies. These practices acknowledge the need to protect the land for future generations and to sustain the level of services necessary to make rural life not merely viable, but financially rewarding and positively enjoyable. The services include health, education, transport, employment, financial services and recreational opportunities. Implementation of Green policies will ultimately require legislative change. Initially it will require consultation with and acceptance by all New Zealanders, including those in the rural community. We favour using information, encouragement and incentives rather than regulation. We recognize that there are national and local community benefits (such as reduced health costs) to be gained from moving to sustainable production practices, but we do not expect producers to bear the brunt of the cost of conversion. All land-based primary production should be ecologically sustainable.
