    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Improvements in on-farm water and soil fertility management through water harvesting may prove key to up-grade smallholder farming systems in dry sub-humid and semi-arid sub-Sahara Africa (SSA). The currently experienced yield levels are usually less than 1 t ha-1, i.e. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Satellite remote sensing of primary production in semi-arid Africa
