IITA Bibliography is a collection of agricultural research publications produced by IITA scientists, research fellows, and students from 1972 to date. The collection includes journal articles, books and book chapters, conference proceedings, training and extension materials, theses, and other publications. IITA conducts research in these thematic areas: biotechnology and plant breeding, natural resource management, social science and agribusiness, plant production and plant health, and nutrition and human health.

  • Early planting of cassava enhanced the response of improved cultivars to potassium fertilization in South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo 

    Birindwa, D.R.; Van Laere, J.; Munyahali, W.; De Bauw, P.; Dercon, G.; Kintche, K.; Merckx, R. (2023-05-15)
    Cassava is the most important crop in DRC, where it is both a staple and a cash crop. Over the last years, cassava productivity seems increasingly constrained by climate disturbances. To respond to these climatic disturbances, farmers opt to adjust the planting period to spread the risk by optimizing their chances to receive the most regular rainfall in the crucial first 100 days after planting. To investigate the potential of varying cassava planting time to mitigate the effect of changes in ...
  • Nitrogen budgets and nitrogen use efficiency as agricultural performance indicators in Lake Victoria basin 

    Ntinyari, W.; Gweyi-Onyango, J.; Giweta, M.; Mutegi, J.; Mochoge, B.; Nziguheba, G.; Masso, C. (2022-10-21)
    Too little nitrogen (N) is a threat to crop productivity and soil fertility in subSaharan Africa (SSA). Nitrogen budgets (NB) and nitrogen use e ciency (NUE) are critical tools for assessing N dynamics in agriculture and have received little or no attention in the region. Data were collected from smallholder farmers clustered into two categories, farmers applying and farmers not applying N fertilizers. NB were calculated using the Coupled Human and Natural Systems (CHANS) model approach for field ...
  • Characterization of starches from some selected white and yellow cassava roots for dry starch noodle production 

    Akinde, H.A.; Sanni, L.; Shittu, T.; Adegunwa, M.; Abass, A.; Awoyale, W. (2022-07-11)
    Starch noodle, originally produced from mung bean starch, is now patronized in many parts of the world. Although cassava is one of the most abundant sources of starch in Nigeria, previous works determining its applicability for noodle production are scarce in literature. This study therefore determined the chemical properties of starches from selected white and yellow cassava for dry starch noodle production. Descriptive attributes and sensory acceptability of the starch noodle produced were also ...
  • A framework to understand the social impacts of agricultural trade 

    Schaafsma, M.; Dreoni, I.; Ayompe, L.M.; Egoh, B.N.; Ekayana, D.P.; Favareto, A.; Mumbunan, S.; Nakagawa, L.; Ngouhouo-Poufoun, J.; Sassen, M.; Uehara, T.K.; Matthews, Z. (2022-08)
    While international trade in agricultural commodities can spur economic development especially where governance is strong, there are also concerns about the local impacts of commodity production and their distribution. Previous frameworks have primarily focused on trade effects on environmental conditions in production regions, as well as economic growth and food security. Instead, we develop a conceptual framework for understanding the impact of agricultural trade on multidimensional wellbeing ...
  • Genetic studies of fall armyworm indicate a new introduction into Africa and identify limits to its migratory behavior 

    Nagoshi, R.N.; Goergen, G.; Koffi, D.; Agboka, K.; Adjevi, A.K.M.; du Plessis, H.; Van den Berg, J.; Tepa-Yotto, G.; Winsou, J.K.; Meagher, R.L.; Brevault, T. (2022-02)
    The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith) is native to the Americas and a major pest of corn and several other crops of economic importance. The species has characteristics that make it of particular concern as an invasive pest, including broad host range, long-distance migration behavior, and a propensity for field-evolved pesticide resistance. The discovery of fall armyworm in western Africa in 2016 was followed by what was apparently a remarkably rapid spread throughout sub-Saharan ...
