Dr. Stephen K. Boahen: Smallholder soybean farming in Mozambique

What is the status of smallholder soybean production in Mozambique?

Dr. Stephen K. Boahen, a Legume System Agronomist at The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA)-Mozambique, addresses this question with a focus on a number of critical aspects such as the keys to achieving high yields, the main varieties recommended for the agro-ecological areas of Mozambique, and constraints to improved seed distribution.
