Research on crop water use and drought responses in East Africa

Research on crop water use and drought responses in East Africa

International Crops Research Institute for the Semi Arid Tropics: Proceedings of the international workshop on the agroclimatological research needs of the semi arid tropics, Hyderabad, India, 22-24 November 1978: 170-180

A research project aimed at development of cropping systems for the marginal rainfall areas of Kenya is introduced, together with a brief review of pertinent research in E. Africa. The phrase 'sequential research on limiting factors' is used to characterize the research concepts and approach taken in the project.
