Abstract
R. B. Allnutt [1] has described in this Journal how the people in Shinyanga, in very unfavorable circumstances, succeed in producing crop of paddy in most years by careful bunding to collect all possible rainfall, run-off or seepage. He has also mentioned briefly that sometimes the water collected in training-bunds or in cattle-ponds is used to augment the natural supplies of water.
