Abstract
Some of the advantages of mixed or multiple cropping, as opposed to growing crops in pure culture, are enumerated. The practice is particularly suited to primitive agriculture, and although of limited value in modern mechanized farming, certain types of the system are still of importance. Perennial crops, which are not so dependent on mechanized farming, are suited to the system. Examples of mixed cropping found in East Africa are given.
