Constraints to Agricultural Advancement within the Ndop Plain North West Region, Cameroon

Kometa Sunday Shende, Kang Edwin Mua


Over the years, the government of Cameroon has been very instrumental in her struggle towards ensuring increased agricultural productivity. This has been exemplified through the creation of agricultural parastatals to educate the farmers, the provision of high quality seeds as well as the provision of extension services and subsidies to farmers. In spite of the fact that a lot of effort has been put in North West Region, present trends show that agricultural productivity has been declining in many areas. This paper examines constraints to agricultural advancement within this plain using both primary and secondary sources of data.  The results show that there is usually a scramble for resources used without adequate management leading to over exploitation and depleting of rangeland resources. It was also revealed that e low yield in crops are attributed to variations in the period the rains come and their intensity, poor quality seeds, pests and diseases.Hence, there is need to organize mass sensitization campaigns against bush burning and embark on sustainable rangeland management by supporting grazers to carry out improved pasture development

Keywords: Agricultural advancement, rangeland resources, climatic variation, crop yield, improved pasture development
