A manual: measuring size of small farms


, : A manual: measuring size of small farms. Discussion Paper, Department of Agricultural Economics, International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (6/79): 40

Accurate measurement of the area of farmers' fields is a prerequisite for the description and understanding of existing farming systems. In tropical Africa, and in many other developing countries, the problem is compounded by the irregularity and disjointed nature of farmers' fields. This paper is a basic training manual for calculating the area of such fields, using the irregular polygon method, which has proven to be simple, fast and accurate.
