    African smallholder farmers can be categorized on the basis of: (i) the agro-ecological zones in which they operate; (ii) the type and composition of their farm portfolio and landholding; or (iii) on the basis of annual revenue they generate from farming Size: KB. disaggregated into agro-ecological zones. Second, data on important economic variables are provided so analysts may incorporate this data into economic models. Data on economic variables are provided for timber types and is not disaggregated to the agro-ecological zones. The data are derived from numerous sources of information, as described below.

    None of the aforementioned studies, however, has assessed productivity within the context of agro-ecological zones. This paper intends to examine productivity trends and patterns in Nigeria as well as the drivers of such trends in the last several years, specifically during The objectives of this case study were to assess on-farm, market, and wild food diversity and to collect relevant information about its availability, accessibility and usage in three different agro-ecological zones of Western Kenya.

We defined agro-ecological zones suitable to produce arabica coffee by clustering geo-referenced coffee occurrence locations based on bio-climatic variables.

We used random forest classification of climate data layers to model the spatial distribution of these agro-ecological by: The original FAO Agro-ecological Zones Project (FAO, ) was an early exercise in the application of land evaluation at a continental scale.

The methodology used was innovative in that it characterized tracts of land by quantified information on climate, soils and other physical factors, which are used to.

Harmonised sets of soil property estimates are necessary for a wide range of environmental studies at a global scale: agro-ecological zoning, assessments of crop production, soil vulnerability to pollution, soil carbon stocks and change, and soil gaseous emission potentials.

GTAP Resource # "Agro-ecological Zone Emission Factor (AEZ-EF) Model (v47)" by Plevin, Richard, Holly Gibbs, James Duffy, Sahoko Yui and Sonia Yeh Abstract The purpose of the agro-ecological zone emission factor model (AEZ-EF) is to estimate the total CO2-equivalent emissions from land use changes, e.g., from an analysis of biofuels impacts or policy analyses such as estimating the Cited by: 7.

A recent report published in the journal Nature cites that the project was able to reach million farmers across counties in the country between and This covered a total area of million ha.

The project first conduc field trials in different agro-ecological zones in China. Cultivation of Coffea arabica is highly sensitive to and has been shown to be negatively impacted by progressive climatic changes.

Previous research contributed little to support forward-looking adaptation. Agro-ecological zoning is a common tool to identify homologous environments and prioritize research. We demonstrate here a pragmatic approach to describe spatial changes in agro-climatic Cited by:   Particular attention is required to the type of agro-ecological zone and the influence of urbanization.

RWS buffer zones accounted 75, 76 and 75% of total harvested areas for rice, millet, sorghum, and maize, respectively of the national area for these crops. For rice and maize in two RWS buffer zones no actual weather data could be found, so the covered area decreased to 60% (rice) and 69% (maize).

Crop and management information. Highlights Six agro-climate zone schemes used in yield gap and crop production analyses were reviewed and compared.

Within-zone climate heterogeneity was analyzed for each scheme. Number of zones required to adequately cover the harvested area of a target crop was calculated for each scheme.

The data collected were the total biomass, number of pods per plant and seeds per pod, seed weight as yield components, and grain yield. This assessment aims to project how changes in climate might affect smallholder farmers through impacts on productivity and profitability of agricultural systems that are widely adopted in Eastern Africa, using protocols and methods developed by the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP).Cited by: 2.

An agroecological zone (AEZ) is a land resource mapping unit, defined in terms of climate, landform, and soils, and has a specific range of potentials and constraints for cropping (FAO, ). The shifting patterns of AEZs in China driven by future climatic changes were assessed by applying the agroecological zoning methodology proposed by International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis Cited by: 2.Zones combines superior technical expertise, more than 30 years of successfully delivering on commitments, and a partner ecosystem of more than 2, hardware and software companies to remove complexity from IT initiatives and enhance your return on investment.Inland Valleys in West Africa: An Agro-Ecological Characterization of Rice-Growing Environments P.N.
