Research on Dry Matter Production, Nutrient Cycled and Removed as Well as Soil Fertility Changes in Yam-Based Cropping Systems with Herbaceous Legumes in the Guinea-Sudan Zone of Benin

Deforestation and soil nutrient degradation are common outcomes of traditional yam-based cropping systems (shifting cultivation, slash-and-burn, and short fallow). The aim of this research was to see how yam-based systems with herbaceous legumes affected dry matter (DM) production (tubers, shoots), nutrient removal and recycling, and soil fertility changes. Traditional...
