CIMMYT-Zimbabwe: Summary of projects
Nitrogen effects on maize yield following groundnut in rotation on smallholder farms in sub-humid Zimbabwe
Rotating maize (Zea mays L.) with groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.) has been proposed as a way to maintain soil fertility and prevent maize productivity declines in the smallholder cropping systems of sub-humid Zimbabwe. ...
The sustainability of a groundnut plus maize rotation over 12 years on smallholder farms in the sub-humid zone of Zimbabwe
An experiment was conducted on four smallholder farms and on-station in the sub-humid zone of northeast Zimbabwe for 12 years to assess how the rotation of groundnut with NPK-fertilized and unfertilized maize affected the ...
Multi-site, multi-season field tests demostrate that herbicide seed-coating herbicide-resitance maize controls Striga spp. and increases yields in several African countries
Plant parasitic Striga (witchweed) species have not been controlled in susceptible host crops prior to exerting damage. High dose, localized herbicide levels can be applied on or near maize seed bearing acetolactate synthase ...
