  • Climate change adaptation strategies and its impact on household vulnerability to food insecurity: a micro-level evidence from Southwest Ethiopia 

    Begashaw, A.; Ketema, M.; Mehare, A.; Yami, M.; Feleke, S.; Abdoulaye, T. (2024-07-06)
    Smallholder farmers in Ethiopia face increasing challenges from climate change and variability, which threaten their food security and livelihoods. This study examines how adopting single and combined climate change adaptation practices affects their vulnerability to food insecurity in Bench Maji Zone, southwest Ethiopia. Through multistage sampling, data was gathered from 390 rural households in four climate-prone districts. The study examines the impacts resulting from both individual and combined ...
  • Structure of Aspergillus flavus populations associated with maize in Greece, Spain, and Serbia: implications for aflatoxin biocontrol on a regional scale 

    Ouadhene, M.A.; Callicott, K.; Ortega-Beltran, A.; Mehl, H.L.; Cotty, P.J.; Battilani, P. (2024-04)
    Aspergillus flavus is the most frequently identified producer of aflatoxins. Non-aflatoxigenic members of the A. flavus L strains are used in various continents as active ingredients of bioprotectants directed at preventing aflatoxin contamination by competitive displacement of aflatoxin producers. The current research examined the genetic diversity of A. flavus L strain across southern Europe to gain insights into the population structure and evolution of this species and to evaluate the prevalence ...
  • Economic analysis of on-farm trial of drought tolerant maize in Kwara state Nigeria: a gender approach 

    Ayinde, O.E.; Abdoulaye, T.; Takim, F.O.; Oloyede, A.O.; Bankole, F.A. (2016-01)
    This study analyzed the profitability of on-farm trial of Drought Tolerant (DT) Maize in Kwara State Nigeria using a gendered innovation approach. A Two-stage stratified sampling technique was used. The primary data for the study were collected through the use of well-structured questionnaires administered to forty (40) women farmers in an on-farm trial of the DT maize variety. The analytical tools used include Descriptive statistics, Ranking and Farm budgeting analysis. The result of the analysis ...
  • Are farm input subsidies a disincentive for integrated pest management adoption? Evidence from Zambia 

    Tambo, J.A.; Liverpool-Tasie, L.S.O. (2024-04-23)
    Input subsidy programmes (ISPs) remain a popular but contentious policy tool to promote agricultural intensification, food security and poverty reduction across Africa. Although previous studies have explored the impact of ISPs on various smallholder outcomes, no studies have analysed the impact of recent ISPs on pest management. This is particularly important given the increasing pest challenges due to climate change and the recent surge in pesticide use in low-income countries and its associated ...
  • Making genome editing a success story in Africa 

    Abkallo, H.M.; Arbuthnot, P.; Auer, T.O.; Berger, D.K.; Burger, J.; Chakauya, E.; Concordet, J.-P.; Diabate, A.; Di Donato, V.; Groenewald, H.; Guindo, A.; Koekemoer, L.L.; Nazare, F.; Nolan, T.; Okumu, F.; Orefuwa, E.; Paemka, L.; Prieto-Godino, L.; Runo, S.; Sadler, M.; Tesfaye, K.; Tripathi, L.; Wondji, C. (2024-03)
