Investigating Conservation Agriculture (CA) Systems in Zambia and Zimbabwe to Mitigate Future Effects of Climate Change
Most models predict that climate change will affect the southern African region both through temperature rises and increased frequency and severity of drought. Conservation agriculture (CA) based on minimal soil disturbance, ...
Conservation agriculture systems for Malawian smallholder farmers: long term effects on crop productivity, profitability and soil quality
(Cambridge University Press, 2012)
Conservation agriculture (CA) systems are based upon minimal soil disturbance; crop residue retention and crop rotation and/or intercrop association are increasingly seen to recycle nutrients, increase yield and reduce ...
Cumulative effects of reduced tillage and mulching on soil properties under semi-arid conditions
Declining soil productivity is one of the greatest challenges facing smallholder agriculture. This study assessed effects of reduced tillage and mulching on soil organic carbon, bulk density, infiltration and maize yield. ...
