Abstract

For each of fourteen types of "rangelands" the vegetation and its carrying capacity for livestock are outlined| limitations such as alternate use for crop growing, flooding and the risk of tsetse fly are discussed. From these studies it seems that 2 million cattle are at present on land that should carry only 1.2 million, making de-stocking necessary. (EMS).
