Project description

The aim of this project is to analyse the dynamics of the farming systems in the densely populated provinces of Ngozi and Muyinga in the north of Burundi. Farming systems are characterized by a high level of mixed cropping mainly in order to secure the family’s food security. This study aims at modeling the potential for more productive farming patterns.
