Economic analysis of soil erosion effects in alley-cropping, no-till, and bush fallow systems in southwestern Nigeria



Economic analysis of soil erosion effects in alley-cropping, no-till, and bush fallow systems in southwestern Nigeria



Diversity, farmer knowledge, and sustainability: 225-245



Shifting cultivation is typical of traditional agricultural systems in tropical Africa. Farmers fell and burn the woody vegetation, cultivate the cleared land, and then abandon the site to forest and bush cover. Today, however, with increasing populations, fallow periods have decreased, leading to more intensive cultivation of marginal land as well as clearing of new forest land for agriculture.
