The areas designated as Arable and Prime Arable Land are either now used for agricultural crop production or are considered suitable for this purpose. In particular, an area adjacent to each village is shown as arable.
In addition, the area surrounding the proposed water reclamation plant, to the north-east of the city, is designated as prime arable land. This will be the result of using the water produced by the plant for irrigation purposes and sludge as fertilizer.
The lands designated as Arable and Prime Arable should be strictly reserved for agricultural crop production. Wherever feasible, these lands should be improved with irrigation to optimize their yield.
Where grazing cattle tend to enter the arable lands and can destroy the crops, barriers of mponda or other material should be planted.
