Research Highlights

This tool visualizes the long-term (1960-2014) gridded monthly precipitation, near-surface temperature, and Palmer Drought Severity Index time series for sub-Saharan Africa summarized across districts.

The purpose of this series of country briefs is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of agricultural characteristics integrat- ed with socio-economic variables across countries.

Cover Atlas of African Ag

Years of weathering have leached nutrients away from many soils in the cropped areas of Africa south of the Sahara (SSA).

Cover Atlas of African Ag

The Atlas of African Agriculture Research & Development presents a broad range of geospatial data that relate to strategic agriculture policy, investment, and planning issues.

Authors use crop and impact models to examine which current and potential agricultural technologies offer solutions to fight hunger.

We estimate global wheat losses over the past 50 years absent investments in research to limit impacts of stem rust and discuss how this can inform decisions about “right-sizing” research investments.

Our new spatial output indexes show that 16 to 21 percent of the increase in U.S. corn output over the 128 years beginning in 1879 was attributable to spatial movement in production.
