The members of the East Africa Royal Commission, 1953-55, drew attention in their Report1 to the Kilombero valley region of south-central Tanganyika as an agricultural zone of high potential. The extensive area of fertile land was at that time virtually undeveloped, but several major projects have subsequently been established, and investigations have shown that future agricultural expansion on a scale unprecedented in Tanganyika would be both technically possible and economically advantageous.
