Ivan Cuvaca discussed cassava tuber yield and quality as influenced by NPK fertilizer. Molefi Mpheshea described maize yield response to fertilizer in Lesotho and aspects of soil quality. Lilian Mbuthia examined whether microbial populations change under long term conservation agriculture, and Deb O’ Dell compared carbon dioxide Flux between Till and No-till in Lesotho.
