Indigenous legumes biomass quality and influence on C and N mineralization under indigenous legume fallow systems
Non-cultivated N2-fixing indigenous legumes can be harnessed to enhance soil fertility replenishment of smallholder farms. Understanding N release patterns of biomass generated by such legumes is key in managing N availability ...
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 ...
Germination, field establishment patterns and nitrogen fixation of indigenous legumes on nutrient-depleted soils
Integrating N2-fixing indigenous legumes in smallholder farming systems has potential to alleviate some of the major soil fertility constraints associated with lack of nitrogen (N) inputs in many parts of Sub-SaharanAfrica. ...
Combating food insecurity on sandy soils in Zimbabwe: The legume challenge
The continued rise in mineral fertilizer costs has demanded cheaper alternative N sources for resource-constrained smallholder farmers, with N2-fixing legumes presenting a viable option to maintain crop productivity. A ...
