We estimate a double hurdle model of fertilizer use for four major cereal crops: barley, maize, teff, and wheat. Africa's savannas are probably the oldest grasslands on earth and have changed little during the last 14 million years.

Humans have lived there longer than anywhere else, perhaps more thanyears. Grass seeds have sustained them throughout. Indeed, gathering Africa's wild-cereal grains is. To link to this object, paste this link in email, IM or document To embed this object, paste this HTML in website.

Abstract: The Ethiopian government has been promoting a package-driven extension that combines credit, fertilizers, improved seeds, and better management practices.

This approach has reached almost all farming communities. Nearly all of Ethiopia’s agriculture is dependent on rainfall, particularly the amount and seasonal occurrence.

Future climate change predictions agree that changes in rainfall, temperature, and seasonality will impact Ethiopia with dramatic consequences. When, where, and how these changes will transpire has not been adequately addressed.

The objective of our study was to model how projected. / (print),/ (pdf) - Unusual changes in grain markets have been the source of major concerns for the Government of Ethiopia and its development partners.

Species are native to tropical and subtropical regions of all continents in addition to the southwest Pacific and Australasia.
