SP1: Increasing Water Use Efficiency in African Leafy Vegetable Production Systems

The project has the following five specific research objectives:

  • Develop water conserving cropping technologies
  • Determine water use parameters as a basis for irrigation scheduling
  • Evaluate genetic diversity in drought tolerance and compositional changes
  • Develop a cropping systems model for planning and evaluation
  • Develop improved irrigation strategies based on model results and experts’ preferences
