    The Kofyar are a tribe of o members occupying an area of some km.2 on the southern escarpment of the Jos Plateau in Northern Nigeria. They are almost unique in Africa in practising a system of intensive mixed farming on field terraced with stone walls, applying large amounts of dung from penned animals, household refuse, and ashes to the soil.   Among the Kofyar of Nigeria, beer is the primary means for repaying voluntary labor to hoe and harvest agricultural fields and for building corrals and houses (21).
