Erkossa, T.; Awulachew, S.B. 2009. Agricultural productivity in Ethiopian Nile and interventions. Poster. Addis Ababa (Ethiopia): IWMI/Nairobi (Kenya): ILRI
Ethiopian part of Nile is dominated by mixed crop–livestock rainfed agriculture. Agricultural productivity in the area is low due to: high temporal and spatial variation in climate, sever land degradation; lack of appropriate technologies; poor infrastructure & limited extension services, etc. Interventions for sustained & increased productivity and reverse the current state of land degradation are needed. This poster shows the result of study conducted to characterize the prevailing farming systems, identify suitable technologies and assess their possible impacts.
