Climate-smart soils: testing soil health in Western Kenya

For over a decade, CIAT has tested agronomic and soil management practices in Western Kenya. From minimum tillage to integrated soil fertility management, these trials are the most comprehensive picture of tropical soil health that we have in Kenya. They show-case changes in soil fertility and health, which take time to develop, hence the importance of these long-term trails. CIAT’s “Climate-smart soil protection and rehabilitation in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, India and Kenya” project is implemented in collaboration with the Kenya Agriculture and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO); GOPA and implementing partners including PAFID, Welthungerhilfe and WOCAT - University of Bern. It is supported by the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
