Research Highlights

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.

This tool helps users to identify specific sites within the SAGCOT (Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania) area where new irrigation investments should target at 10 km spatial resolution.

Study evaluates the potential impacts of 'Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa' project run by CIMMYT and IITA in 13 sub-Saharan African countries.

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.

Model-estimated yield variability of rainfed maize with high input for 1981-2010 (30-year period). Values are for 5 arc-minute grid cells.

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).

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

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.
