Animals and trees for better crops film – Part of the Fighting Striga series
In semi-arid West Africa, farmers and herders explain why and how trees and livestock play a crucial role in obtaining a productive soil and crop. In Niger and Ghana this is one of the strategies of integrated Striga and soil fertility management that has a positive effect across agro-climatic zones. This is 1 of the 10 films in the “Fighting Striga” series.
