Bridging the disciplinary gap in conservation agriculture research, in Malawi. A review
(Springer; Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, 2020)
A short-term assessment of carbon dioxide fluxes under contrasting agricultural and soil management practices in Zimbabwe
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2015)
Two of the biggest problems facing humankind are feeding an exponentially growing human population and preventing the accumulation of atmospheric greenhouse gases and its climate change consequences. Refined agricultural ...
Evidence and lessons learned from Long-Term On-Farm Research on Conservation Agriculture Systems in communities in Malawi and Zimbabwe
A long-term study was carried out in the Zidyana Extension Planning Area (EPA), Malawi and in the Zimuto Communal Area, Zimbabwe, to evaluate the effect of different conservation agriculture (CA) systems on crop productivity, ...
Short-term impacts of tillage and fertilizer treatments on soil and root borne nematodes and maize yield in a fine textured cambisol
(Society of Nematologists, 2018)
Conservation agriculture (CA) based on the principles of minimum soil disturbance, crop residue retention, and crop rotation has been the focus of intensive research in recent years. A study was carried out to determine ...
Spider community shift in response to farming practices in a sub-humid agroecosystem of southern Africa
Most spiders are generalist predators and important biological control agents of various insect pests of agricultural crops. A study was conducted to determine the impact of cultural practices on the abundnace and diversity ...
Medium-term effects of conservation agriculture on soil quality
(Academic Journals, 2017)
Inefficient management practices lead to soil organic matter depletion, structure breakdown and increased erosion. This has resulted into low crop yields of sub-Saharan Africa. Conservation agriculture (CA) is being ...
Response of maize (Zea mays L.) secondary growth parameters to conservation agriculture and conventional tillage systems in Zimbabwe
(Canadian Center of Science and Education, 2016)
Previous, research focused mainly on the effects of conservation agriculture (CA) and conventional practices (CP) on crop yield mostly. A study was conducted at five sites in Zimbabwe from 2012 to 2014 to investigate effects ...
