Six monthly progress report on work undertaken in gender preferred dual purpose crops.
Participatory Methodology - Gender Preference for Dual Purpose Crops
Participatory methodology for undertaking gender preference studies in crop-livestock systems. It includes various participatory tools for gender and socio-economic analysis.
Gender preferred dual purpose crops with laboratory evidence
Working document on gender preference on crops along with evidence from laboratories for food-feed traits.
Integrated use of fertilizer micro-dosing and Acacia tumida mulching increases millet yield and water use efficiency in Sahelian semi-arid environment
Limited availability of soil organic amendments and unpredictable rainfall, decrease crop yields drastically in the Sahel. There is, therefore, a need to develop an improved technology for conserving soil moisture and ...
Hill placement of manure and fertilizer micro-dosing improves yield and water use efficiency in the Sahelian low input millet-based cropping system
tInadequate nutrient supply and insufficient rainfall are the most important limiting factors for crop pro-duction in the Sahelian agro-ecological zones. Targeted technology application may help to improvethe efficient use ...
Determinants of fertilizer microdose-induced yield increment of pearl millet on an acid sandy soil.
Recent studies have reported the benefits of fertilizer microdosing in increasing crop yields in low input cropping systems. Little information is however available on the mechanisms underlying this effect. The objective ...
Is rainfed agriculture really a pathway from poverty?
Agriculture’s potential to reduce poverty at household level is explored for rainfed crop production in Africa and India. A literature survey of crop improvement and natural resource management interventions demonstrates ...
Use of sorghum on stepwise substitution of maize in broiler feeds in Niger
With an objective to demonstrate the merits of diets based on locally produced non-tannin sorghums as against maize on total of 240 1-day old broiler chicks. Results indicated that tannin free sorghum had nutritional value ...

Mapping of groundwater potential zones across Ghana using remote sensing, geographic information systems, and spatial modeling
Groundwater development across much of sub-Saharan Africa is constrained by a lack of knowledge on the suitability of aquifers for borehole construction. The main objective of this study was to map groundwater potential ...
