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 ...
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 ...

Wheat is the second most important crop in Kenya after maize and is becoming an important source of food both for humans and livestock. Despite increasing wheat production, only 50% of domestic consumption requirements are ...
Integrated management of Striga hermonthica, stemborers, and declining soil fertility in western Kenya
Striga hermonthica (Delile) Benth., stemborers, and declining soil fertility are serious threats to sustainable food production in the Lake Victoria zone of Kenya. To address these constraints, promising integrated crop ...
Up-scaling and out-scaling conservation agriculture technologies: The case of a local innovation platform in eastern Kenya
An innovation platform (IP) is a forum for diagnosing problems of common interest, exploring opportunities and solutions. Such a platform comprises a multi-sectoral and/or a multi-institutional partners. The initiative ...
