  12. AccessAgriculture Training Video It is important to pull striga weeds with your hands before the time it produces seeds and spreads. As it is laborious, better reduce the number of striga plants by applying compost or manure, and by rotating or intercropping with non-cereal crops, such as cowpea....
  13. Abstract, 2018, Sustainability Saline irrigation water can lead to salt buildup and reduced crop yields. Halophytic plants are known to accumulate excess salts in tissues, removing them from the immediate environment. This two-phase experiment explored the feasibility of intercropping watermelon...
  14. 26/3/2015 Through research in South Africa, ECHO has been developing best-practicesfor growing Moringa and other crops. This reasearch, through the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, demonstrates growing Moringaon a large scale for powder production including soil fertility management and pruning. This...
  15. AccessAgriculture Training Video Legumes like pigeon peas take nitrogen from the air and deposit it into the soil. When pigeon peas are intercropped the root nodules release valuable nitrogen to the other crop. Any roots, leaves or stems of the pigeon pea plant that stay in the field also help to...
