Presentation Transcript


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

  • Objectives of the planning workshop

  • Explain the Agronomy Master Plan

  • Identify main actions in each cluster

  • Organize each actions (provide a planning table)

  • Assign responsibilities (to each of the actions identified)

  • Fix time lines (to ensure timely deliver of outputs)


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

N2Africa project- D to R model

  • The Development-to-Research concept driving the agronomy activities of N2Africa.

  • ‘D&D’ refers to ‘Delivery and Dissemination’

  • ‘R&D’ to ‘Research and Development’,

  • ‘A&A’ to ‘Adaptation and Adoption’, and

  • ‘M&E’ to ‘Monitoring and Evaluation’. The dotted line within the D&D circle indicates that agronomy activities are driven by learning from D&D.


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

Agronomy Master Plan

The N2Africa Phase II has five major objectives

– AMP addresses all the three

  • AMP consists of four interlinked activity clusters:-

  • The Diagnosis activity clusters

  • The Researcher-managed Agronomy activity cluster

  • The Demonstration activity cluster

  • The Adaptation activity cluster evaluates

Each activity cluster contains a number of specific tasks/actions


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

Agronomy Master Plan

  • Objectives of the planning workshop

  • Explain the AMP

  • Identify main actions in each cluster

  • Organize each actions (provide a planning table)

  • Assign responsibilities (to each of the actions identified)

  • Fix time lines (to ensure timely deliver of outputs)

  • Actions for country teams

  • Site selection- (trial locations) (25 – 100/Woreda (action site)

  • Variety choice

  • Establish need for inoculants (faba bean)

  • Procurement of materials for trial establishment (seed, fertilizer and inoculant…)

  • Engagement of farmers for establishing on-farm trials

  • Collecting of associated observations (soil, weather etc.)

  • Planting, managing, and harvesting the trials

  • Data collection

Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

The Agronomy research clusters

Aims to generate system recommendations (non responsive soils, trial of untested varieties, input and management practices)

  • Based on data collected and analyzed :

  • Define specific hypothesis about factors limiting legume productivity

  • Define specific hypothesis about factors causing non-response to inputs (missing nutrient?)

  • Researcher managed and minimum number of trials

  • Assessment of the occurrence of non responsiveness - missing nutrient?

  • Agronomic trials to establish recommendation for improved legume production


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

The Agronomy research clusters

  • Actions for country teams: (short –term; Missing Nutrient?)

  • Site selection (Where?) few in number – where non responsiveness exists

  • Determination of relevant treatments and experimental design

  • Execution of trials and data collection

  • Actions for country teams: (long-term; systems research – rotation )

  • Site selection and institutional/farmer engagement (FTC?), one per region?

  • Establishment of trial (Treatments: control, rotation, pure legume, pure cereal), 3-5 Rep

  • Organize long term data collection


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

The Demonstration cluster

Aims for large scale on-farm demonstration of tested (best-bet) technology options- legume intensification

  • Actions for country teams:

  • Definition of basket of options

  • Site selection

  • Procurement of materials for trial establishment (seed, fertilizer and inoculant…)

  • Engaging associations/kebeles [25 – 50/Woreda (action site)]

  • Selection of demonstration fields and definition of subsets of options for each field

  • Treatment structure and experimental design

  • Design and planning of associated observations (soil, weather etc.)

  • Execution of trials and data collection

  • Organizing field days and communicating results


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

The Demonstration clusters

  • Definition of basket of options ?

  • Do we have options/practices currently farmers use? eg. Application of manure in Uganda

Demo/ dissemination (Baby trials )- on individual farmers plot , non replicated


Objectives of the planning workshop explain the agronomy master plan

The Adaptation cluster

Involves a large number (200 -1000 per site) of small fields that form de-facto satellites of the demonstration

  • Actions for country teams:

  • Site selection (trial location)(avoid extremely bad or good soil, Take market access into account)

  • Engagement and registration of participating farmers

  • Procurement of materials for trial establishment (seed, fertilizer and inoculant…)

  • Prepare farmer-specific technology packages, farmers interest

  • (Small scale experiments around the themes: variety, input, management, systems agronomy. Always include farmers normal practice/variety as a control)

  • Collection of farmer feed back

  • Selection subsets of trials for detailed monitoring and measurement

Nutrition and Gender loops – also points for group work

Nutrition aspect:Recipe preparations, supplementary food (food processing) andawareness creation on nutritive value of the legumes, at least incollaboration with partners (e.g, Hawassa University: in collaborationwith Food Science Department, etc.) for demonstration activity clusteror also others.Gender mainstreaming:Women participation in project activities (technology development,food quality and market attributes of legumes), business developmentfor women groups (village level collective marketing), etc.
