Crop and livestock farming complement silage and high-fibre crop residues that are unsuitable for human consumption. Michael R. F. Lee is reader in sustainable livestock systems at the In complex mixed crop-livestock systems with limited resources and biomass scarcity, crop residues play an important but increasingly contested role. This paper focuses on farming systems in the semi-arid areas of Zimbabwe, where biomass production is limited and farmers integrate crop and livestock
Downloadable! Crop residue use for soil mulch and animal feed are the two major competing purposes and the basic source of fundamental challenge in conservation agriculture (CA) where residue retention on farm plots is one of the three CA principles. Using survey data from Kenya and applying bivariate ordered Probit and bivariate Tobit models, this paper analyzes the tradeoffs in maize residue Potentially lupin can fix and accumulate a total of to kg/ha per year nitrogen (Takunov and Yagovenko ; Reeves et al ; Jansen ). In the North-western part of Ethiopia where mixed crop-livestock production is the typical farming system, crop rotation and/or fallowing is a common

Renard (Ed.), Crop Residues in Sustainable Mixed Crop/Livestock Farming Systems, CAB International, Wallingford, UK (), pp. Farmers in mixed crop-livestock systems produce about half of the world’s food. In small holdings around the world, livestock are reared mostly on grass, browse, and nonfood biomass from maize, millet, rice, and sorghum crops and in their turn supply manure and traction for future crops.
Animals act as insurance against hard times and supply farmers with a source of regular income from sales Abstract. Conservation agriculture practices require a critical level of crop residues and cover crops to maintain or enhance soil chemical, physical and biological properties and prevent land degradation.
In many areas of the world, crops and livestock compete for the same resources, and require proper management to meet conservation agriculture :// Crop residues in sustainable mixed crop - livestock farming systems. toon extra info.
by C. Renard. Auteur(s) Renard, C. In this workshop a multidisciplinary systems approach was used to investigate the use of crop residues to improve the productivity and sustainability of mixed crop/livestock farming systems.
These proceedings are an Integrated Crop-Livestock Farming Systems 1. LivestockThematic PapersTools for project design Integrated crop-livestock farming systems Population growth, urbanization and income growth in developing countries are fuelling a substantial global increase in the demand for food of animal origin, while also aggravating the competition between crops and livestock (increasing cropping areas and Paper presented by Elisabeth Bandason, Bunda College, at the 10th African Crop Science Society Conference, th October in Maputo While livestock are the most obvious users of crop residues, we should not forget that these resources may also play important alternative or complementary roles in sustaining future crop production by conserving soil moisture, preventing erosion and increasing soil organic matter content.

Livestock systems depending on grain-based feeds, as is the case in the developed world, use more water than systems relying on crop residues and pasture lands (Peden et al., ). In many of the mixed farming systems in SSA, no extra water is allocated to meet the animal feed :// Crop residues in sustainable mixed crop/livestock farming systems By C.
Renard Get PDF (1 MB) The Kano close-settled zone in the Soedano-Sahelian region of Nigeria has been the site of an intensive mixed farming system of the NCA mode where for the last 30 years all available land has been under annual cultivation.
Small ruminants consume crop residues, in particular those of groundnuts and cowpeas, which are good quality In view of concerns regarding increasing regulation of concentrated animal feeding operations, long-term sustainability, natural resource degradation, and stability and profitability of farm income, there is a considerable interest in integrated farming systems.

Transfer of nutrients and energy via crops and livestock Crop-livestock interactions provide a key to ecological sustainability by intensifying nutrient and energy cycles.
Crop residues are an important source of forage in smallholder farming systems. In the early dry season in West Africa, cattle spend up to 80% of grazingDevelopment and application of modem technology for upgrading straw in Europe during the 's has stimulated intense interest in developing countries.
Sincetwenty four international workshops have been held in Africa and Asia to consider research and development on crop residues as feed, with emphasis on improving their intake and digestibility in ruminants by treatment with ammonia Typical South East Asian crop-livestock mixed farming systems (Devendra and Thomas, ) were prevalent for ages in the present study area.
