|Name||EIA - Proposed Development of Farm no. 2520 to an Intergrated Farming Project in Ndola by Sree Plc|
|Description||SREE PLC intends to establish a mixed farming project incorporating livestock rearing with cultivation of fruits, vegetables, soya beans and wheat through the use of sprinklers for irrigation purposes. The proposed project site is located in Ndola district 15.4km from the Central Business District (CBD), on Farm No. 2520, Mushili road and is 129 ha in extent.
The proposed development of the farm will comprise cropping operations for soya beans, wheat, fruits and vegetables by both rain fed and overhead irrigation agriculture. These will be grown on crop rotation basis both using rainfall and irrigation. The main source of water for irrigation will be the Kafubu River by direct abstraction and temporal storage. The proposed project will also involve the rearing of cattle, poultry, pigs and fish. Tilapia fish (Oreochromis Niloticus) will be farmed using the re-circulation aquaculture system with the source of water being the Kafubu River and Nsobe camp will be the source of fingerlings. Tilapia fish will be stocked in plastic tanks that are in series with each other and are connected with the water purification system. The proposed project layout will include workshop, storage facilities, fuel storage facility (10,000L capacity), staff houses, cold rooms and boreholes for domestic water supply. The total investment cost for the project is estimated at USD135,000 and the proposed lifespan of the project is 99 years.
