Climate Change (CC) and with sub-optimal nutrient contents in the soils of Lesotho is negatively impacting yield and yield components of maize. Often, the grain yield is often ≤ 2.50 t/ha in most cases. One of the ways smallholders in Lesotho try to mitigate the impact of CC and sub-optimal nutrient contents is through the practise of Conservation Agriculture (CA) called likoti farming. Data (soil and socio-economic variables) were collected from smallholder farmers practising Likoti Farming Systems (LFS) in Lesotho. Surface soil (0-20 cm) samples and socioeconomic data were collected between 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 cropping seasons from 105 smallholder farmers in 22 villages. Read More……
