Intensification of maize production is imperative to improve food security for the rising population in the central rift valley (CRV) of Ethiopia, whose livelihood is principally based on rainfed maize that operates under shrinking landholding and high seasonal rainfall variability. This study examined different levels of intensification options in maize production by sequentially introducing minimum tillage and seed priming, phosphorus (P) fertilizer microdosing, surface mulching and nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
