OF PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS
and Soil Characteristics
Rekopane is characterized by a flat topography with
not much altitude variation, as clearly shown by the
contour lines on the farm map.
to a new development, consultants analyze the soil profiles,
nutrient status and drainage capacity of the spesific
area. The suitability of different cultivars is discussed
and recommendations for improving the soil conditions
erosion is not a problem. Drip-irrigation minimize run-off
and the embankments of the ground canals are planted
with "kweek". The invader reeds also aid in keeping
erosion on the embankments at bay.
