Abstract : Agriculture in the Republic of Sudan. The Sudan is afflicted with chronic famines that are all the more terrifying in that its population is expanding at a rapid rate. The nation, however, could feed more inhabitants if it were better exploited. The author presents the satisfactory results obtained everywhere by peasants who have adopted agricultural techniques that are adapted to the natural settings. He analyzes the success obtained and also the disappointments encountered in the irrigation practiced on the large mechanized farms that are run by the Government. In addition, he describes the disastrous consequences of introducing mechanized farming on the vast expanses of the eastern part of the country, which is subject to scant rainfall.
