Abstract:

This study used the techniques of remote sensing and Geographic Information System to map farm parcels in irrigation farm scheme of Pampaida Millenium village, Ikara, Kaduna state Nigeria with a view to showing the efficiency of the techniques in mapping and database creation. The findings show the different crop types, the farm sizes, distances of the farms to irrigation canal and farm owner profile in a database format, which is a data retrieval method based on location and attribute. This was done to identify the exact position of the farms from the canal within a 150 m buffer corridor, which is a convenient and affordable distance for peasant farmers to channel water to their farms during the dry season and to further assess the vulnerable extent of the farms in event of a flood disaster.
