|Project abstract||In Ghana,Zia has been successfully been introduced on a limited scale to farmers in the East Gonja, East Gonja, East Mamprusi districts in the Northern region and Guru and Builsa district in Upper East region Presbyterian Agricultural Services. However Zia farming is an innovative technology which involves the burial of manure/organic matter in holes/ pits and planting the crop later on top of the pit. The purpose of this activity is to evaluate and disseminate the Zia and Fertilizer Micro-dosing techniques on-farm, also need for research on cost benefit analysis of the Zia and Fertilizer Micro-dosing, potential increase in grain yield of Zia and Fertilizer Micro-dosing over farmers practice in the Africa RISING intervention communities, Comparative analysis of the effect of Zia and Fertilizer Micro-dosing on maize,sorghum,millet.|
