Sustainable food-crop production in the semi-arid tropics: strategy for technology transfer in millet research



Sustainable food-crop production in the semi-arid tropics: strategy for technology transfer in millet research



Journal of Sustainable Agriculture 9(4): 25-47



Technological options available for increased millet production and productivity in West and Central Africa are many in the National and International agricultural research institutions. Research information is available on the constraints associated with both the crop and the environment. Solutions in the form of improved technologies to several of these constraints are known.
