Overview

This project has the following four objectives:

  • To avail to partners a set of previously tested soil, crop, and water management options for maize-based farming systems with potential for sustainably intensifying agricultural production and reducing climate-related risk in the target areas
  • To identify land degradation hotspots and soil health constraint envelopes and their implications for crop response characteristics to fertilizer application and soil improvement
  • To evaluate the availability to smallholder farmers of inputs required to implement above options in the target areas
  • To assess the conduciveness of the political, extension, and economic environment for the dissemination of tested soil, crop, and water management options
