Abstract

This overview of the physical resources of the Communal Lands of Zimbabwe is based on a compilation and condensation of the results of reconnaissance soil surveys undertaken between 1985 and 1991. The area surveyed and mapped at 1 :500 000 scale comprises some 163 500 km2 or 42% of Zimbabwe. Fifty land units, identified by interpretation of aerial photography and defined on a broad geological and landform basis, are used as the framework for describing and mapping the Communal Lands, hereafter referred to as CLs. Following an introduction to the physical environment encompassed by the CLs, each unit is described according to land characteristics and resources relevant to an assessment of potential for agricultural improvement.
