Assessing Sustainability Of Smallholder Dairy And Traditional Cattle Milk Production Systems In Tanzania

ABSTRACTSustainability of smallholder dairy and traditional cattle milk production systems in developing countries, including Tanzania, is limited by a number of constraints such as low cow productivity, shortage of feed, limited access to inputs and outputs markets and degradation of natural resources.

Evaluation Of Lime In Ameliorating Soil Acidity For Improved Yields Of Intercropped Sugarcane And Soybean In Western Kenya
