The potential of Faidherbia albida trees for improving soil quality and yield level of maize under dry land agriculture

Ongoing

The research hypotheses are: F. albida consistently increases maize yields under dry land agriculture. F. albida improves chemical and biological soil quality and is efficient pumping up of nutrients that have leached to deeper soil layers. The objective is to quantify effect and calculate the potential of F. albida trees on the yield level of maize under dryland agriculture.
