Abstract

The Gezira is an area of land, a part of the Democratic Republic of the Sudan, which lies between the Blue Nile and the White Nile. The area extends in a triangular shape from the junction of the two Niles at Khartoum on the north to the city of Sennar on the south (Figure 1). The area of this extremely flat plain is approximately two million hectares, one million of which are irrigable. It is considered the largest farm under one management in the world (Barbour, 1961).
