This book explains why conservation agriculture has such promise. It shows how farmers and extension workers can do it. This book is the result of an initiative by a group of people from various institutions across Africa and throughout the world. This group includes farmers and researchers, extension workers and policy makers, governments, non-government organizations and the private sector. A unique alliance for a uniquely

promising approach. They have drawn on their own knowledge, on the work of their organizations, and on the successes of hundreds of thousands of farmers through Africa. They have put all these experiences together into this guide: the first manual on conservation agriculture covering the whole of Africa.
