    Abstract: In Tropical Africa, particularly Sub-Saharan Africa production of citrus is seriously hampered by citrus leaf and fruit spot (Pseudocercospora angolensis) disease. The yield reduction due to this disease can reach 50% - 100% when climatic conditions are favorable to the disease development and effective control measures are not implemented timely. ... Show More

    Abstract: Eucalyptus plantation has been playing essential task in narrowing the gap between the supply and demand for wood and wood products in the region. Though eucalyptus is fast-growing and has a better survival rate compared to other exotic species, there is a claim that Eucalyptus species overexploiting the nutrients and water. This consequently led t... Show More

    Abstract: The lowland areas of Ethiopia have significant potential for increased oil crop production including groundnut. In Benishangul Gumuz Region, groundnut is cultivated in various zones and woredas under rain fed condition. However, due to insufficient improved groundnut varieties found in the region the productivity was low. Testing genotypes for the ... Show More
