Abstract
This project aims 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 will test and disseminate 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 will evaluate the trade-offs of adopting interventions and address critical development questions.For more infos see: Projekt Website
