SUMMARY

About the project

Project title: Research in Sustainable Intensification in the Sub-Humid Maize-Based Cropping Systems of Babati, Tanzania

We undertake a profitability analysis of the incremental changes in existing practices by farmers in comparison with standard farmer practices so as to enable farmers to visualize the economic benefits of the proposed technologies including vegetable-cereal intercropping and crop rotation trials for new technology adoption.
