Abstract:

In south sudan area of Mali, women grow sorghum in their Fields. In order to improve thé production, those who are trained in farmer field school are applying mineral fertilizer micro dosing in their fields. One study was undertaken in this area to assess the impact of this mineral micro fertilization on sorghum yield. The investigations were done at the level of 213 women in three types of growing sorghum villages: control villages (Sido and Solo), pilot village of Niako and the scaling out villages of Kondo, Banankoro and Nèrèkoro in which woman are applying the technical itinerary learned in farmer field school. The cultivated areas have significantly increased in the pilot and scaling out villages. Sorghum yield has been considerably improved by the application of fertilizer micro dose (2 g of di-ammonium phosphate/hill during sowing time or 21first day after sowing when soil is humid). Sorghum yield is better in pilot village that has its input shop and a warrantage ware house indicating that efforts should be put in the technical and financial follow up of women in the diffusion villages.
