Though the district administration always calls upon its people to participate in government programs especially Land Use Consolidation and cultivating one crop on large scale, this is not yet effective to the people who cultivate in the mountains who still farm individual farms and mix different crops.
Ignace Twahirwa a resident of Ryabitana cell in Gacurabwenge sector says that the main reason people like mixing different crops in their farms is because of small land pieces and yet they want to produce about everything.
People who own farms in valleys and swamps try to respect the Land Use Consolidation program because most of the times are in cooperatives that get them market for their produce and those who are in charge of agriculture follow up on them closely.
In different swamps, farmers cultivate maize and vegetables or beans exchanging the period though farmers complain of getting little money in the maize produce compared to other crops.
Joseph Nzayirambaho who farms in Bahimba swamp which is in between Nkingo and Gihinga cells says that a garden that produces vegetables worth Rwf50.000 produces maize worth Rwf20.000.
However, farmers that cultivate maize and sell their produce to Rwanda Agriculture Board (RAB) are happy with the price they sell their produce at which is Rwf400 per a Kilogram when others buy at Rwf200 per Kg.
Justin Mukiza the officer in charge of agriculture in Kamonyi district says that there are many limitations in land Use Consolidation program in hilly areas but in swamps and valleys, this problem was solved.
The fact that all people have not yet moved into settlement villages is a limitation to Land Use Consolidation program and even cultivating one common crop.
The district is opting teaching local farmers how to grow more than one crop in one garden in the farming season 2013A where farmers will cultivate beans and maize in alternating lines in one garden.
