Mark Dokotela Ncube
Mr. Ncube has developed his mixed farm in Matabeleland South on conservation principles.
His land surrounds a swamp, which he has preserved by planting grasses, which also serve as grazing for cattle. He pipes water from the swamp to reservoirs from which he irrigates, waters stock and cattle, and draws domestic supply. Mr. Ncube has shown how wise conservation can contribute to successful production.
He was awarded the Zimbabwe Natural Resources Certificate of Merit.
Mr. Ncube has shown that protection of swamps assists fanning in dry areas and his farm is a green oasis.
