Tsafack S, Degrande A, Franzel S, Simpson B. 2014. Farmer-to-farmer extension in Cameroon: a survey of extension organizations. ICRAF Working Paper No. 182. Nairobi, World Agroforestry Centre.

Sygnola Tsafack & Degrande Ann
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/VQXGPVDespite the central role that farmers play as agricultural producers in developing countries, they are often inadequately served by research, extension and advisory services. Extension approaches such as the farmer-to-farmer extension (F2F) approach were developed to improve service to farmers, but little is known about how this approach is being used in Cameroon. This paper examines the experiences of organizations using the F2F extension approach. Specifically, the study characterizes and...

Replication Data for: Can gender appreciation of trees enhance landscape multifunctionality? A case of smallholder farming systems on Mount Elgon

Mieke Bourne, Joan Kimaiyo, Joseph Tanui, Delia Catacutan & Verrah Otiende
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/SCKGMVTrees provide livelihood support functions and environmental services that contribute to the multifunctionality of landscapes. The presence or absence of trees is influenced by the interactions between ecological, social-economic and cultural elements. The role of gender in land use perceptions and changes involving trees have received little attention. In Africa, gender differentiated access, use and decision-making related to trees are common features. Divergent control and access to resources by men...

Replication Data for: Smallholder farmers’ perceptions of climate change and the roles of trees and agroforestry in climate risk adaptation: evidence from Bohol, Philippines

Rodel D. Lasco, Marya Laya O. Espaldon & Christine Marie D. Habito
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/SCA37FRecent studies have highlighted the importance of trees and agroforestry in climate change adaptation and mitigation. This paper analyzes how farmers, members of their households, and community leaders in the Wahig–Inabanga watershed, Bohol province in the Philippines perceive of climate change, and define and value the roles of trees in coping with climate risks. Focus group discussions revealed that farmers and community leaders had observed changes in rainfall and temperature...

This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/QWZMUIRecent studies in the Nawa region of Cote d’Ivoire have indicated an acute malnutrition rate of 11.3% among cocoa producers. One of recommended actions from the studies was to diversify agriculture with nutrients rich crops. Introduction of soybean (Glycine max) cropping system could go a long way to ensure food and nutritional security in the region. The current study was conducted in two sites (Logboayo and Soubré) in the south-west...

Replication data for: Intercropping Teak (Tectona grandis) and Maize (Zea mays): Bioeconomic Trade-off Analysis of Agroforestry Management Practices in Gunungkidul, West Java

Nimatul Khasanah, Aulia Perdana, Gerhard Manurung, James Roshetko & Meine Van Noordwijk
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/PG6BZIProducing high quality wood meeting export standards requires intensive tree management. Using a tree-crop interactions model (WaNuLCAS) we analyzed tree management practices in intercropped teak and maize compared to teak and maize monocultures. Tradeoff analysis in intercropped teak and maize was designed in a three-treatment factorial: initial teak density (1600 trees ha-1 (2.5m × 2.5m), 1111 trees ha-1 (3m × 3m) and 625 trees ha-1 (4m × 4m)), thinning intensity...

This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/PCWNU7This paper used a multivalued treatment framework to assess the effects of farmer managed natural regeneration (FMNR) on selected outcomes among 1080 rural household farmers in the Sahelian and Sudano-Sahelian ecozone of West Africa Sahel. The results indicate that keeping, protecting and managing trees in the farmland have significant effects on the livelihoods of the rural poor in the Sahelian countries. If 1000 households in a community decide to practice...

This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/OQLEEIIn the Lake Naivasha basin, Kenya, there is an example of long running Payment for Environmental Services (PES) project, which received some private sector funding sporadically during the past ten years. The project had both environmental and socio-economical aims: to lessen soil erosion and sediment/fertilizer loads to Lake Naivasha, meanwhile educating the land user, i.e. farmers, to gain higher yields by more sustainable farming methods. The more sustainable farming methods...

Erick Towett, Keith Shepherd, Andrew Sila, Ermias Aynekulu & Georg Cadisch
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/N0UGWLDiffuse reflectance Fourier transformed mid-infrared (DRIFT-MIR) spectroscopy can predict many soil properties but extractable nutrients are often predicted poorly. This paper tested the combined DRIFT-MIR and total X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) spectroscopy analysis for prediction of soil properties related to soil fertility. A total of 700 soil samples from 44 stratified randomly located 100-km2 sentinel sites distributed across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) were analysed for physicochemical composition using conventional reference methods, and...
