    • push pull

      EOA uses various technologies in demonstrating soil fertility and ecological crop protection. Push pull is a system that integrates fodder and cereals(desmodium,Napier or molato ll and maize,) in a manner that desmodium repels maize stalk borer,fixes nitrogen in the soil thus increased soil fertility and feed for livestock which is rich in proteins hence increased milk. Maize is free from the stalk borer /striga weed and gets enough nitrogen resulting to good harvest and Napier attracts the stalk borer in which it starves to death and also feeds livestock. The technology is a real diversity that benefits an ecosystem. For more information contact icipe wensite www.icipe.org and search for push pull.

      About KENFAP The Kenya National Federation of Agricultural Producers (KENFAP) is the umbrella farmers? federation representing interests of 1.8 million farm families and the legitimate farmers? voice in Kenya. It was established in 1946 as a Farmers Union representing exclusive interests of large-scale white farmers, but later on underwent institutional transformation from a farmers union to a Federation in 2003. KENFAP is a non-political, noncommercial, democratic federation of Kenyan farmers. The federation operates through networks locally, nationally, regionally and internationally. In this endeavour, KENFAP is a member of Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), Eastern Africa Farmers Federation (EAFF) and International Land Coalition (ILC) purposely to amplify the farmers? voice within and outside Kenya through small strategic partnerships, affiliations, and coalitions.

  • Account: Future-Agricultures

    • FAC

      Future Agricultures Consortium is a multidisciplinary and independent learning alliance of academic researchers and practitioners involved in African agriculture. We aim to encourage dialogue and the sharing of good practice by policy makers and opinion formers in Africa on the role of agriculture in broad based growth. Collectively we offer a responsive mode of working, so we can engage with policy debates and issues as they arise. Currently the Consortium consists of over 20 researchers from African and UK institutions focussing on Kenya, Ethiopia and Malawi. However, in our new phase of work, 2010 - 2013, FAC will expand to work in over ten countries across Africa, involving over 50 researchers from African and UK institutions Since mid-2005, the Consortium has built an effective and dynamic partnership between leading African and UK institutions, developed a strong evidence base for policy processes at global, national and local levels, including contributing to the 2008 World Development Report and linking with insights from participatory regional consultations on the future of agriculture in Africa.

  • Account: ICIPE

    • ICIPE

      icipe is a tropical organisation with a tropical agenda. But why study insects? Because in the tropics, insects are a fact of life to be reckoned with. Insects pose a greater risk to food production, often causing the loss of entire crops and destroying about half of all harvested food in storage. The 'old' tropical vector-borne diseases of malaria, dengue, kala-azar and the like are making a dramatic comeback, and frightening new ones are emerging. Livestock succumb in their millions of insect- and tick-borne diseases, resulting in loss of milk, meat and traction power. Underlying all of these issues is the fundamental poverty of most tropical countries and inability to harness their natural resources for themselves. Established in Kenya in 1970, icipe's founders recognised that the mainly developing countries in the tropics had special problems that were not being adequately addressed by scientists and organisations in the North. Furthermore, there was a serious lack of indigenous expertise to resolve these problems. It should come to no surprise therefore that icipe's objectives for this millennium are essentially the same as they were three decades ago: * To help ensure food security and better health for humankind and its livestock; * To protect the environment; * To conserve and make better use of natural resources.

    • Medicinal plants

      The mission of Product Research and Development is the discovery and development of drugs. Drugs, although often inadequate or compromised by resistance, are still the mainstay for control of these diseases as no vaccine is yet registered for trypanosomiasis. Due to the increased costs of developing and registering pharmaceutical products, together with the prospect of inadequate commercial returns, the pharmaceutical industry are largely shying away from the area of tropical parasitic diseases. In African trypanosomiasis, each of the drugs in use has its drawbacks. Pentamidine and suramin, used only for early-stage disease, both have serious side effects. Of the two drugs used for late-stage disease, melarsoprol is very toxic and even fatal while eflornithine is expensive and only affects Trypanosoma brucei gambiense Plants have provided the basis for traditional treatment for different types of diseases and still offer an enormous potential source of new chemotherapeutic agents.

      Trees play a crucial role in almost all terrestrial ecosystems and provide a range of products and services to rural and urban people. As natural vegetation is cleared for agriculture and other types of development, the benefits that trees provide are best sustained by integrating trees into agriculturally productive landscapes ? a practice known as agroforestry. Farmers have practised agroforestry for years. Agroforestry focuses on the wide range of working trees grown on farms and in rural landscapes. Among these are fertilizer trees for land regeneration, soil health and food security; fruit trees for nutrition; fodder trees that improve smallholder livestock production; timber and fuelwood trees for shelter and energy; medicinal trees to combat disease; and trees that produce gums, resins or latex products. Many of these trees are multipurpose, providing a range of benefits.
