How much extension is needed for resource conserving agriculture in West Africa? A case study with the Kassena in Burkina Faso



How much extension is needed for resource conserving agriculture in West Africa? A case study with the Kassena in Burkina Faso



Entwicklung + Landlicher Raum 30(3): 17-19



The dominant form of cropping in the West African Sahel-Sudan zone is slash and burn. With population increase this frequently leads to soil impoverishment and erosion because the fallow period is too short. The population of Kassena in south Burkina Faso have for many generations practised a method of resource conservation through a system of permanent crops combined with erosion prevention using a network of small stone walls.
