  1. Access Agriculture Training Video In Kenya, small-scale farmers stabilise river banks and reduce rainwater runoff from nearby plots by planting trees and grasses. Available languages Arabic Bemba Chitonga / Tonga English French  
  2. Access Agriculture Training Video Live barriers are made up of lines of native grass, bushes and trees. The native plants are adapted to living with little water and they withstand the strong winds. Available languages Arabic Aymara Bambara English French Kiswahili Luganda Peulh / Fulfuldé /...  
  3. Access Agriculture Training Video Introduction to sustainable land management practices which have a proven track record in Africa. They can help control land degradation and improve production for small scale farmers, despite the challenges of climate change. Available languages Bemba Chitonga...  
  4. Access Agriculture Training Video Stone lines induce a natural process of terracing as they trap sediments. Stone lines or stone bunds can slow down runoff, increase water infiltration and form the basis for improved production in semi-arid areas. By using the contours of low slopes water...  
  5. Abstract,Agronomy for Sustainable Development, 2015 Dryland areas cover about 41% of the Earth’s surface and sustain over 2 billion inhabitants. Soil carbon (C) in dryland areas is of crucial importance to maintain soil quality and productivity and a range of ecosystem services. Soil...

With a high rate of population growth, subsistence-based rural economy, and increasingly intense rainfall events in the monsoon season, Nepal is prone to several forms of land...  
  8. Abstract, Scientific Reports, 2019 Farming plot construction engineering in hilly areas plays an important role in the mechanization, large-scale production and industrialization of agriculture. The method is undertaken to improve water and soil conservation, enhance soil fertility and extend...  
  9. Access Agriculture Training Video In the semi-arid savannas where rainfall is limited and highly unpredictable, retaining more water in the soil can make the difference between a poor and a good harvest. You can slow down the runoff water by establishing contour bunds. Contour bunds are permanent...
