Crop Production System Zones of the IGADD Sub-Region is FAO's Agrometeorology
Working Paper Series No. 10.

The study describes actual farming in the arid and hyper-arid areas,
marginally productive and productive lowland, marginally productive and
productive highland, and irrigated areas.

The data is viewed through a software provided on a 3.5 HD diskette, and a map
of IGADD Crop Production System Zones. The accompanied book provides the
methodology, and explanation of codes, definitions, and other details, and
includes additional maps and tables.
