Zambia Fertilizer Assessment Executive Summary Zambia has adopted a comprehensive strategy, utilizing the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) framework and related approaches, to increase agricultural productivity with the aim of raising incomes and reducing food insecurity.

        Chris points out that liming is essential in Zambian crop production as soils are generally acidic. Soils are also generally low in phosphate. Soil types Lwimba Ranch has a wide range of soil types, including Hutton and several others unique to Zambia. Soil structure ranges from sandy to heavy clay. The ranch’s arable soils are sampled annually. The Web Soil Survey allows you to create custom reports by selecting a specific area of interest.

D.L. Karlen, in Overview of productivity of Zambian soils book of Soils in the Environment, Summary. Soil productivity encompasses soil fertility plus the inherent and management-related factors affecting plant growth and development. It is generally measured in terms of inputs versus outputs, which for agronomic situations generally refers to water and/or nutrient input versus crop yield.

Soils. Zambia is divided into three main agroecological regions based primarily upon annual precipitation; there is further variation within regions based on factors such as soil type, temperature, precipitation, and elevation. The first region includes portions of the southwestern corner of the country, as well as the country’s major valleys.

Once the temperatures approach the thirties, your lettuce will definitely need shade. Lettuce is a crop that you need to experiment with yourself to see which varieties grow best in your soil.
