Soil and yield in legume niche exploration

The project aims at facilitating the smart integration and use of multi-purpose legumes, providing food, protein, feed, fuel, and/or organic matter in smallholder crop-livestock farming systems. It provides knowledge and tools to farmers to assist in making rational decisions in the choice of legumes so to enhance short and long-term contributions of multi-purpose legumes to farmer livelihoods. During the identification of niches for chosen legumes, soil and yield were collected on the plots where the legumes were grown.
