Abstract
The practice known as "shifting cultivation" is used where there is room. The dividing line between the much-abused practice of "shifting cultivation" in Africa and the much-commended one of "grass leys" in Europe is a fine one and I see no reason for condemning the former as applied in part of this country. It is remarkable that one of, the chiefs I talked to, who had spent some years in Italy as a prisoner, had noticed that there was no room in Italy for shifting cultivation and had been much impressed by their standard of farming. In many parts of the country two crops are grown per year, often one grain crop and one bean or pea crop.
