“ The Study Examines the sustainability of mechnaised in Habila, Nuba Mountains, Sothern Kordofan as a form of agriculture and model of development. The study concluded that rainfed mechanised farming in Habila does not at all appear to be a sustainable type of development. This is reflected in that mechanised farming lacks aspects of compatibility between economic compatibility between economic activity and local inhabitants. Mechanised farming lacks elements of fairness and equity in the relation between the Jallaba scheme holders and local inhabitants. It has intensified destructive conflicts over resources between different production systems. It has moreover encouraged the expansion and persistence of the civil war in the Sudan”
