Africa Soil Information System - Phase 1, Kontela

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 Surveilllance framework and inlcuded also multi-location diagnostic trials in selected sentiale sites to determine nutrient limitations and response to improved soil management practices (soil amendments)
