      An example of this type of integrated thinking: A macro-analysis of the current agricultural situation in the semi-arid tropics of Africa reveals the following facts: In dry Africa, agriculture is. India's agricultural growth also experienced much higher standard deviation than China (Government of India, ). This is in part because China has a more favorable temperate climate than India's semi-arid tropics, where 60 percent of the production is rainfed.

      Downloadable! During the last 3 decades, donors and governments have invested in the development and dissemination of new technologies in the semi-arid tropics of West Africa. Though a wide range of improved technologies has been developed, adoption remains low without a significant impact on crop productivity, rural income and poverty. Diversity is the norm in African farming systems. Even at the level of the individual farm unit, farmers typically cultivate 10 or more crops in diverse mixtures that vary across soil type, topographical position and distance from the household compound. Dixon and colleagues () provide the most comprehensive description of farming systems globally (Table and Figure ).

The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) is a non-profit, non-political organization that conducts agricultural research for development in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa with a wide array of partners throughout the world. To stimulate debate in agricultural research circles, the paper discusses six sets of issues for the design and strategy of agricultural research on sustainability in the semi-arid tropics of Africa, to wit: (i) what production systems to propose in what zones, in particular how and where to intensify; (ii) what measures are needed to conserve the resource base in different zones; (iii) what Cited by: The semi-arid zones of the world are fragile ecosystems which are being sub­ stantially modified by the activities of mankind.

Increasing human populations have resulted in greater demands on semi-arid zones for providing human susten­ ance and the possibility that this may enhance desertification is a grave concern.

These zones are harsh habitats for humans. The semi-arid tropics (SAT) encompass parts of 48 developing countries including most of India, parts of southeast Asia, a swathe across sub-Saharan Africa, much of southern and eastern Africa, and parts of Latin America.
