Project title AfricaRISING - Sustainable intensification of maize-legume-livestock integrated farming systems in West Africa
Project abstract Sustainable intensification of mixed crop livestock systems is a key pathway towards better food security, improved livelihoods and a healthy environment. As part of the US government’s Feed the Future initiative to address hunger and food security issues in sub-Saharan Africa, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) is supporting three multi-stakeholder agricultural research projects to sustainably intensify key African farming systems. In West Africa the project is being implemented in Ghana and Mali. In Ghana, project activities include the testing and dissemination of drought and striga resistant, high yielding, short/medium/long duration multi-purpose crop varieties and dairy goats and sheep breeds; prevention of water logging, appropriate and optimal water and land use options for minimizing soil erosion, and dry season irrigation; planting density, cereal-legume-vegetable intercropping, crop diversification, and agroforestry; semi-intensive and intensive management, dry season feed supplementation, vaccination and deworming of livestock; value-addition, reducing pre- and postharvest losses, linking farmers to input and output markets, as well as ensuring better integration of the crop and livestock enterprises; group and individual training and short courses for farmers; encouraging farmer-to-farmer learning and extension.
