Nigeria - Nigeria - Climate: Nigeria has a tropical climate with variable rainy and dry seasons, depending on location. It is hot and wet most of the year in the southeast but dry in the southwest and farther inland. A savanna climate, with marked wet and dry seasons, prevails in the north and west, while a steppe climate with little precipitation is found in the far north.

Mixed cropping or intercropping is an important practice in the savanna agro-ecology of Nigeria and is considered as part of the subsistence farming designed to meet the increase in domestic food Author: Tajudeen Oseni. Mixed cropping as an input in the management of crop pests in tropical Africa.

Paper presented at the 15th International Congress of Entomology, Washington DC, 19 – 27 August   In spite of the prevalence of mixed cropping throughout the developing world little effort has been expended on its investigation particularly under indigenous conditions.

This paper attempts to partially rectify this with empirical data collected at the farmer's level in part of northern by: Diagnostic on-farm nutrient omission trials were conducted over two cropping seasons ( and ) to assess soil nutrients related constraints to maize yield in the northern Nigerian savanna agro-ecological zone and to quantify their variability.

Two sets of trials were conducted side by side, one with an open pollinated maize variety (OPV) and the other one with a hybrid maize variety and Cited by: Northern Nigerian Savanna and to involve areas where research for de velopment can suppo rt extension suppo rt programmes engaged in maize value chain initiatives.

First, a comprehensive review of existing literature on the organization and management of cassava crop economy in Nigeria was undertaken.

Secondly, quantitative information on the area, production, marketing, etc., of cassava was collected from the libraries of major institutions that are active in the cassava subsector as well as through.

Mixed cropping, also known as polyculture, inter-cropping, or co-cultivation, is a type of agriculture that involves planting two or more plants simultaneously in the same field, interdigitating the crops—like interlocking your fingers—so that they grow together.

The Crop Environment Resource Synthesis (CERES)-Maize model in Decision Support System for Agricultural Technology Transfer (DSSAT) was calibrated and evaluated with experimental data for simulation of response of two intermediate-maturing maize varieties to different sowing dates in the Nigerian savannas.

The calibration experiments involved 14 consecutive field trials conducted in the. Research work on soil in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has generated numerous outputs but very few have been translated into adoption to improve the livelihoods of the smallholder farmers. This is the greatest challenge Africa needs to address in order to achieve the highly sought after green revolution.

Cropping systems in the Nigerian savannas is intensifying because of high population pressure. Increasing crop yield is essential and this will lead to pressure on natural resources and threaten sustainability of farming systems (Amjadian et al., Reference Amjadian, Latift, Farshadfar and Gholipoor ).

Integrated soil management with leguminous cover crops was studied at two sites in the northern Guinea savanna zone of northern Nigeria, Kaduna ( day growing season) and Bauchi ( days).

One-year planted fallows of mucuna, lablab, and crotalaria were compared with natural grass fallow and cowpea controls.

All treatments were followed by a maize test crop in the second year with 0, 30, or. A 2-year field experiments were conducted in the Guinea savanna agro-ecological zone of Nigeria in and growing seasons to determine the response of sorghum [Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench] and cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp] to different levels of phosphorus and zinc fertilization on low P soil.

The experiment was laid out in a 4x3 factorial arrangement in a randomized complete. CiteScore: ℹ CiteScore: CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g.

Through reference to existing empirical research, the sequence of events in the process of degradation of the Nigerian agricultural basins and the adjoining river systems was identified and related to the appropriate causal agent.

there is the need to continue the practice of mixed cropping or planting a combination of crops within a single. This review examined the effects of livestock grazing on vertebrate wildlife, including mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians, but not fish.

The purpose of the review was to collate the evidence for positive, negative, and neutral effects of livestock grazing on wildlife abundance, demography, diversity, or behavior.

The data of the Nigerian GDP from agriculture reported by the National Bureau of Statistics showed that the GDP in the fourth quarter of was 4, million NGN and decreased to 3, million NGN in the first quarter of Fig.
