Africa Soil Information System - Phase 1, Kasungu

The AFSIS project aimed to establish an Africa Soil Information system. Data was collected in sentinel sites across sub-Saharan Africa using the Land Degradation Surveillance framework and included also multi-location diagnostic trials in selected sentinel sites to determine nutrient limitations and response to improved soil management practices (soil amendments).
