Ecoagriculture Initiatives in Eastern and Southern Africa

edited by J.F. Devlin

All twenty-seven papers in this collection share a concern to promote a 'holistic' ecological approach to farming. They survey a range of ecoagricultural topics: soil management, integrated pest management, farming systems, institutional supports and barriers, all with specific reference to Eastern and Southern Africa. The papers reflect some of the variety of indigenous knowledge, current research and training efforts that will contribute to agricultural renewal in Eastern and Southern Africa. The volume is one of five of the output of the Environmental Capacity Enhancement Project - a four year project involving participants from thirteen African countries.
