A Survey of Soil Fertility Status of Four Agroecological Zones of Mozambique

  title={A Survey of Soil Fertility Status of Four Agroecological Zones of Mozambique},
  author={Ricardo M. Maria and R. Yost},
Mozambique includes 10 agroecological zones with distinct climate and cropping systems (INIA, 1980). Agricultural production is more intensively practiced in the central and northern parts of the country where agroecological conditions are favorable. As a result of 16 years of civil war and low funding for agricultural research few assessments of soil nutrient status have been possible. To assess soil nutrient status, four agriculturally promising agroecological zones were selected for a survey… CONTINUE READING
