The role of the smallholder farmer community in soil fertility evaluation and management was examined from two ‘research for development’ projects in northern Tanzania. These are the African Highlands Initiative (AHI) and the Soil Water Management Research Group (SWMRG). Participatory approaches were applied by both projects. Farmers’ knowledge and experience were used in identifying soil fertility constraints using local indicators of soil quality and in generating resource flow maps. The… CONTINUE READING
