Giving Seeds an Added Boost to Survive Harsh Sahelian Climates

The Sahel region of Africa is home to the world’s harshest cropping environment, hosting poor, sandy soils, low and erratic rainfall and excessive soil surface temperatures.

 

The Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Sorghum and Millet, led by Kansas State University, is collaborating with Ludger Herrmann, a researcher from the University of Hohenheim, to improve seeding success rates and combat the Sahel’s harsh conditions with a tiny capsule that may revolutionize Sahelian cropping systems: the seedball.

USEFUL TREE SPECIES for Eastern Africa

A species selection tool based on the Vegetationmap4africa map

To help farmers, foresters and others to 'find the right tree for the right place', a species selection tool was developed which provides information about tree and shrub species that have been documented to be useful to farming or pastoral communities. The tool provides an easy way to quickly find information about species that can potentially occur in any selected location, based on their documented occurrence in the different potential natural vegetation types. The tool is available for Google Earth, is part of the Vegetationmap4africa web-based map and is integrated in the mobile maps if used together with Locus map viewer.
