International wheat breeding research in Eastern and Southern Africa, 1966-97
This paper describes and analyzes some of the impacts of wheat improvement research in seven countries in the Eastern and Southern regions of Africa. the countries South Africa, Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, ...
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 ...
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, ...
Insect Resistant Maize for Africa (IRMA) Project Annual Report 2002
Promoting a Versatile but yet minor crop: Soybean in the farming systems of Kenya
Crop promotion is critical for market creation and rural growth in Africa. How to achieve this for crops, other than major staples (e.g., maize) and traditional export crops (e.g., tea), remains a problem since most African ...
