Biografie

I am a Tanzanian PhD candidate specialising in sustainable crop intensification. My current project seeks to better understand spatial variability of input responses in maize cropping systems towards minimising smallholder-farmer’s risks related to fertilizer application and field management practices.

I engage with local farmers in Southern and Northern Tanzania to quantify soil fertility in relation to crop rotation and agronomic practices, measure input responses as a function of soil spatial variability along soil catena, and pursue appropriate means to up-scale improved fertilizer application advice.

As a multi-disciplinary project, the research employs high resolution imagery, GPS technology and general linear models to predict responses and identify nutrient limitations to maize yields.

Besides, my project original data, I also use soil data from AfSIS to complement on-field data. Soil carbon, nitrogen, pH and Cation Exchange Capacity are evaluated to understand current soil fertility levels. TAMASA household surveys form part of my project data and support to inform crops cultivated in the area, whether or not and how crop residues, animal manure, mineral fertilizers and other soil inputs are utilized, which crops and fields farmers targeted for inputs, and farmers’ opinion on causes for soil fertility issues.
