Project description

Rainfed maize yield in Uganda has remained very low compared with that attained by researchers. The study will assess the impact of climate-smart soil management practices on soil-water regime and maize yield using field experiments in Living Labs, and set-up a computer simulation model to simulate and predict maize yield response to these practices using collected data under various climate scenarios.
