Muriuki, Anne; Musyoka, Martha; Fließbach, Andreas and Forster, Dionys (2012) Resilience of Organic versus Conventional Farming Systems in Tropical Africa: The Kenyan Experience. In: Tielkes, E. (Ed.) Tropentag 2012 - Resilience of agricultural systems against crises - Book of abstracts, CUVILLIER VERLAG, Göttingen, Germany, p. 180.
In Kenya, agriculture is largely carried out by smallholder farmers, in a mixed farming noncommercialised setting where application of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides is minimal.
Agricultural production is low and constrained by declining soil fertility, pest and diseases and increasingly unpredictable weather due to global warming. This calls for more resilient farming systems.
