Overview

This project’s goal is to evaluate promising interventions for reducing the production vulnerability of smallholder farmers in central Mozambique through the improved use of germplasm, nutrients and water. The project is testing and disseminating improved agricultural production systems based on drought and disease tolerant germplasm and improved natural resource use based on conservation agriculture (CA) principles, through participatory on-farm experimentation by farmers, combined with spatial analysis tools to characterize problems and help target interventions. It is also evaluating the trade-offs of adopting interventions and address critical development questions.
