A participatory route towards conservation farming for better land husbandry.
MetadataShow full item record
Information drawn from the reports of the World Bank, United Nations and other major agencies provides a potent yet dismal summary of the impact of development precedents in Africa. Poverty, disease, drought, environmental degradation, starvation, war, illiteracy, despotic government and misuse of investment funds all inhibit development and economic growth. This paper explores way in which Africa can overcome such constraints and ensure sustainable development in agriculture. The use of farmers as researchers, a fresh investment approach to conservation farming and a network strategy are proposed.
