Insect Resistant Maize for Africa (IRMA) Project Annual Report 2002
Twenty-five years of research on women farmers in Africa: Lessons and implications for agricultural research institutions -- With an annotated bibliography
Based on an extensive review of the literature on women farmers in Africa, this paper explores the potential reasons why women farmers have not adopted improved maize technologies and discusses the implications for ...
Understanding farm level technology adoption: lessons learned from CIMMYT's micro surveys in Eastern Africa
Drawing on a series of technology adoption studies carried out by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) in collaboration with national agricultural research systems in Eastern Africa during 1996-98, ...
Effect of intercropping maize and soybeans on Striga hermonthica parasitism and yield of maize
Striga hermonthica a major biotic constraint to cereal production can be controlled by trap crops. Soybean cultivars vary in ability to stimulate suicidal germination of the weed. An experiment was conducted to select ...
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 ...
Striga control and improved farm productivity using crop rotation
Crop rotations with crops that are non-hosts of Striga were evaluated to reduce the Striga seed bank in the soil and increase farm productivity. Field experiments were conducted at two sites in western Kenya from 1996 to ...
