    GONDWE W.K.; CHINKHUNTHA J.K.
    ARET, Agricultural Research and Extension Trust, Lilongwe, Malawi
    The high costs of inorganic fertilisers and nematicides has necessitated research for suitable legume crops to be rotated with tobacco according to land size. Four to six years rotations are not being followed on most small farms in Malawi. The result of ...

    GONDWE W.K.; CHINKHUNTHA J.K.; NGWIRA N.S.
    ARET, Agricultural Research and Extension Trust, Lilongwe, Malawi
    Reliance on costly inorganic sources of nitrogen (N) fertiliser for production of tobacco is leading to reduced use of tobacco fertilisers by small holder farmers. Alternative sources of N is the use of manure from leguminous trees or crops. Faidherbia ...
