Climatic constraints to crop production and fertilizer use uri icon

abstract

  • The alarming food deficits projected for sub-Saharan African from recent production figures make itmandatory that no effort be spared in reversing the trend of declining yields. Developing betterunderstanding of such climate-related constraints as high intensity storms, inadequate rainfall or poorrainfall distribution, high temperatures and high evaporative demands, excessive rainfall and higherodibility of soils will result in measures that can overcome or mitigate these constraints
