Integrated soil fertility management strategies

Agri-livestock integrated management

  1. University of Makeni (UNIMAK)

Focus on:

  • Agri-livestock integrated management

  • Constructive land transformation and water management

  • Avoidance of deforestation

UNIMAK operates in multiple FFRUs spread around the country

A series of Surveys has been deployed to Sierra Leone ​farmers to trace a general characterization of the farming systems in the project study areas and to draw a general overview of the current level of adoption of sustainable soil management practices.

Livestock feeding is an essential component for the completion of the human food chain. Considering the lack of sufficient feed resources available for this productive sector, it is fundamental to redesign and carry out within the FFRUs an integrated research of both livestock and agricultural productions embedding of suggestions coming from traditional knowledge (harvesting of cereals and grazing). For these reasons, a series of surveys has been conducted in the FFRUs to investigate if a new “Integrated Agricultural Approach” could be possible within the SI framework.
