Background: The effect of number of health items on OOPs has been identified as a source of bias in measuring OOPs. Evidence comes mostly from cross-sectional comparison of different survey instruments to collect data on OOPs. Very few studies have attempted to validate these questionnaires, or distinguish bias arising from the comprehensiveness of the OOPs list versus specificity of OOPs questions. Objectives: This study aims to estimate biases arising from the specificity of OOPs questions...

Data from: Shelf life and quality of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) fruits as affected by neem leaf extract dipping and beeswax coating

Tigist Tadesse Shonte, Biruk Zewdie & Kebede Woldetsadik
The data was generated to investigate the effect of Beeswax (BW) coating and Neem leaf extract (NLE) dipping on the shelf life and quality of tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) over a storage period of 36 days. A factorial combination of four levels of Neem plant extract (control, 15%, 20% and 25%) and four levels of beeswax coating (control, 3%, 6% and 9%) storage treatments with three replications were applied on fully matured green tomatoes in...

Data from: Carbon sequestration and soil restoration potential of grazing lands under exclosure management in a semi-arid environment of northern Ethiopia

Tsegay Gebregergs, Zewdu K. Tessema, Negasi Solomon & Emiru Birhane
Exclosures are used to regenerate native vegetation as a way to reduce soil erosion, increase rain water infiltration and provide fodder and woody biomass in degraded grazing lands. Therefore, this study assessed the impact of grazing exclosure on vegetation biomass, carbon sequestration and soil nutrients under five and ten years of grazing exclosures and freely grazed areas in Tigray, northern Ethiopia. Vegetation biomass, carbon stocks and soil nutrients increased with increasing grazing exclusion. However, open...

Data from: Ethnobotany of stinging nettle (Urtica simensis Hochst. ex. A. Rich.) in the Oromia region of central and southeastern highlands of Ethiopia

Tigist Tadesse Shonte & Kebede Woldetsadik
The data was generated to document ethnobotanical uses of U. simensis and the associated traditional knowledge of the indigenous people and to identify the factors limiting harvesting and utilization of stinging nettle in North Shewa (R4), Bale and Arsi zones of the Oromia region, central and southeastern highlands of Ethiopia. Thirteen districts were purposively selected from the three zones and a total of 130 respondents were sampled, with consideration of gender, age, occupation, and wealth...

A data set was generated thorugh surveys to establish a baseline inforamtion for a project entitled "Innovations in Technology, Institutional and Extension Approaches towards Sustainable Agriculture and enhanced Food and Nutrition Security in Africa (Acronym - InnovAfrica)". The InnovAfrica is a consortium of 16 institutions comprising five institutions from Europe and eleven institutions from Africa and the project was implemented in six countries of eastern and southern Africa namely Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa...

Prosopis invasion and management scenarios for Baringo County, Kenya

René Eschen, Ketema Bekele, Purity Rima Mbaabu, Charles Kilawe & Sandra Eckert
Climate change, land degradation and invasive alien species (IAS) threaten grassland ecosystems worldwide. IAS clearing and grassland restoration would help to reduce the negative effects of IAS, restore the original vegetation cover, and sustain livelihoods while contributing to climate change mitigation, but uncertain financial benefits to local stakeholders hamper such efforts. This study assessed where and when net financial benefit could be realised from Prosopis juliflora management and subsequent grassland restoration by combining ecological, social...

InnovAfrica project endline survey data for Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa and Tanzania

Ahmad Athman, Alice Murage, Anne Gichangi, Celestin Hitimana, David Banda, Donald Njarui, Esther Bloem, Esther Lupafya, Fekadu Beyene, Feyisa Hundessa, Jessica Ndubi, Kenneth Mapunda, Kibebew Kibret, Laifolo Dakishoni, Lindumusa Myeni, Lizzie Shumba, Mangani Katundu, Mokhele Moeletsi, Maximillian Manzi, Mufunanji Magalasi, Mupenzi Mutimura, Mwangi Gatheru, Sabelo Mazibuko, Tewodros Bezu, Victoria Ndolo … & Sita Ghimire
A consortium of 16 institutions comprising five institutions from Europe and eleven institutions from Africa implemented a project entitled "Innovations in Technology, Institutional and Extension Approaches towards Sustainable Agriculture and enhanced Food and Nutritional Security in Africa (InnovAfrica)" in six countries of eastern and southern Africa namely Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, South Africa and Tanzania from June 2017 to November 2021. The InnovAfrica project collected endline data from 12 pilot sites (two sites per country)...
