Fertilizer in small doses yields higher returns for less money in the fragile semi-arid areas of Zimbabwe

ScienceDaily (March 6, 2014)

Crop yields in the fragile semi-arid areas of Zimbabwe have been declining over time due to a decline in soil fertility resulting from mono-cropping, lack of fertilizer, and other factors. Researchers have evaluated the use of a precision farming technique called “microdosing,” its effect on food security, and its ability to improve yield at a low cost to farmers.
