Farmers on approximately 75% of Limpopo smallholder schemes are currently engaging in land exchange transactions in a highly insecure and un-formalised institutional setup. Land exchange prevalence longer than two years was moderately associated with cropping intensity and strongly associated with commercialisation. This result has three important implications. First, it suggests that more land is utilised on the schemes when there is vibrant land-leasing activity. Secondly, schemes with a higher prevalence of long-term leasing seem to have a strong tendency to be more commercialised. Thirdly, the duration of the lease is significant, as neither single-season, nor annual leases yielded any positive associations, while those exchanges that were two years or longer, were associated with increased performance. These findings highlight the potential for longer-term land-exchange interventions to address the widespread low land utilisation on smallholder schemes, and to catalyse more commercially-oriented farming. An irrigation scheme typology was derived from the cluster analysis and was aligned to a contemporary irrigation farming typology. The key descriptors included technology type, purpose of farming and scheme management type. By matching scheme type to the farmer typology (or typologies), strategic decisions regarding technology choices for infrastructure, land, and water institutional interventions can be better informed. All schemes demand attention to the multiple factors required to achieve performance, not least water-tenure security, irrigation management organisational development, and infrastructure modernisation. Complexity was demonstrated by the finding that multiple factors contribute to success, and that there are many dimensions that change independently and have a cascading effect through the system in ways that are difficult to predict. Agricultural systems support to achieve productivity and profitability are essential for success. The research findings lead to the recommendation that, in addition, strategic planners must also consider the implications of the dominant factors of water-technology choices so that these are manageable, and the dynamics of farm-size change based on land exchange processes, in order to harness new opportunities to maximise irrigation scheme performance in future.]]> Tue 26 Mar 2019 12:07:00 SAST ]]> A comparative study of CERBER, MAKTUB and LOCKY Ransomware using a Hybridised-Malware analysis https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:30702 Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:16:19 SAST ]]> A study of malicious software on the macOS operating system https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:30701 Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:15:08 SAST ]]> An investigation of the teaching of writing in Grade-9 English first-language classrooms: a case study of a selected government school in Namibia https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:30699 Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:13:04 SAST ]]> An Integrated Management System to reduce False Codling Moth, Thaumatotibia leucotreta (Meyrick) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) infested citrus fruit from being packed for export https://vital.seals.ac.za/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:30691 Tue 26 Mar 2019 10:03:14 SAST ]]> Climatic suitability of Dichrorampha odorata Brown and Zachariades (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), a shoot-boring moth for the biological control of Chromolaena odorata (L.)
