AABNF (African Association for nitrogen fixation) is a non-government multidisciplinary group based since 1982, including experts in soil science, nutrition, agronomy, microbiology, politicians and other interested promoting research, teaching and the use of biological nitrogen fixation systems to increase food production and reduce malnutrition in Africa. Congresses are held regularly to share experience and information in order to assess progress and plan for effective exploitation of biological nitrogen fixation systems in Africa. Despite the expected benefits of the BNF, the practical applications are still needed in most of Africa.
Biological Nitrogen Fixation and agricultural development in Africa, great importance was given to field applications. BNF and priorities for research in Africa is the diversity and development; plant bacteria interactions; abiotic stress; the biotic and bio control; BNF status and applications; actinorhizal symbioses.Read More»
