This is a presentation of the research results from my Master’s Thesis which focussed on assessing the determinants of adoption of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) and Improved Rice Seeds (IRS) technologies and its associated effect on rice yield. The study was guided by the Technology Adoption and Diffusion Theories. The study was undertaken […]

Comparative Study of Population Dynamics and Breeding Patterns of Mastomys natalensis in System Rice Intensification (SRI) and Conventional Rice Production in Irrigated Rice Ecosystems in Tanzania

0 Comments

Mastomys natalensis is among the most important rodent pests in Sub-Saharan Africa. This study investigated the population dynamics and breeding patterns of this mouse in system rice intensification (SRI) and in conventional cropping systems in irrigated rice ecosystem in eastern Tanzania. The Mastomys natalensis population varied with years and season, but not with either SRI […]

Who benefits from climate-friendly agriculture? The marginal returns to a rainfed system of rice intensification in Tanzania

0 Comments

Agricultural production in sub-Saharan Africa faces a multitude of challenges arising from land degradation, climate change, and limited access to improved technology. In this context, technologies that raise farmers’ crop productivity while mitigating risk exposure are particularly valuable. This study assesses the impacts of a modified, rainfed variant of the system of rice intensification (SRI) […]
