Based on the concept of integrating agricultural production practices with resource conservation measures, conservation agriculture holds great potential for Africa, where farmers are faced with low yields, poor soils, lack of capital and labour shortages. Illustrated with many line drawings, this manual draws on the skills and experience of 90 farmers, extension personnel and scientists from 16 African countries.
