Experiment set-up: SOC trials in Merchouch and Guich stations, year 1
This is the first progress report of the SOC-related component of the research, on the effects of Durum Wheat genotypes on soil organic carbon and total nitrogen in the root zone.
How Landscape Level Governance and Land Use Planning are Connected: Insights from Case Studies in Marsabit, Isiolo and Makueni
The present document consists of a workshop presentation in which are illustrated three different studies from three different projects, focused on natural resource governance, but all relevant to land use planning.
Experiment set-up: Silicon pot-experiment at Guich station, year 1
This is the first progress report of the Silicon-related component of the research, on the effects of bio-available Silicon on the drought tolerance of Bread Wheat genotypes.
Experimental Designs for Alley Cropping to Estimate Shrub x Grass Interaction
Alley cropping, an agroforestry system, comprises rows of perennial shrubs or trees bordering the alleys of grasses/crops. An appropriately chosen alley cropping provides improvement in feeds for small ruminants, food ...
Assessment of barley genotypes for malting quality: Genotype x environment interactions
Investigating and improving malting quality in barley is long-standing objective worldwide. Genotype by environment interactions (G x E) result inconsistent genotypic performance and obstruct realization of quality traits ...
Farmer field day: Using drip irrigation
Video about a farmer field day organized at INRA Saada Research Station
Farming with alternative pollinators increases yields and incomes of cucumber and sour cherry
Pollinator decline is acknowledged worldwide and constitutes a major subject of environmental research. Nevertheless, farmers’ efforts to protect pollinators in agricultural lands remain very limited, in particular if no ...
Silicon pot-experiment at Guich station, year 1
This research activity titled “ROOT-ZONE SOC AND TN AS AFFECTED BY DW GENOTYPE AND MANAGEMENT, AND SILICON EFFECTS ON DROUGHT TOLERANCE OF BW GENOTYPES” was funded as part of the Project titled “Sustainability and ...
Is Discrimination of 13C in potato leaflets and tubers an appropriate trait to describe genotype responses to restrictive and well-watered conditions?
Selection for drought tolerance entails prioritizing plant traits that integrate critical physiological processes occurring during crop growth. Discrimination against 13C (Δ) in leaflets (Δleaflet) and tubers (Δtuber) was ...
Treesilience: An assessment of the resilience provided by trees in the drylands of Eastern Africa Edited
This book is the result of a consultative process, which brought together experts from Eastern Africa and beyond to synthesize and compile existing information on the role of trees in building resilience in the region’s ...
