About the Project
- Conservation agriculture in Southern Africa presents a lot of opportunities, such as soil moisture retention, and ultimately, improved yields and incomes.
- Soybean and maize crop rotation in Ethiopia. The potential for improving productivity and incomes for Ethiopia's smallholder farmers who depend on maize and legume systems, remains pitifully high. Ethiopia has 1.7 million hectares of maize yielding approximately 2.0 tons per hectare, but with very high variability which inceases the risk of seasonal food insecurity.
