What are the prospects for intensifying soil fertility management in the Sahel? A case study from Sanmatenga, Burkina Faso


, : What are the prospects for intensifying soil fertility management in the Sahel? A case study from Sanmatenga, Burkina Faso. Managing Africa' s Soils ( 22): ii + 24 pp.

This paper discusses the results of a soil fertility management programme in Sanmatenga, Burkina Faso, which analyses the soil fertility management practices of a sample of 40 farming families that participated in project activities in 1998 and 1999. The study covered two zones with different population densities, and the families consequently used slightly different farming practices, depending on where they came from.
