Session 6 : Innovating to find solution to drought at scale for small holder farmers – Where we want to be 4 years from now

2022-05-27T16:13:03+00:00

This session is the last one and would ideally put all the pieces together from the earlier sessions. In this final session, a first part will propose a summary from the conference and the learnings from the 5 sessions. Then the discussion of the panel could be to propose possible avenues to help solve farmer’s problems of uncertainty [...]

Session 5 : Guiding decisions from multiscale data integration and decision support systems to reduce risks

2022-06-14T16:13:45+00:00

This session tackles drought variability by different means, seeks a better understanding of variations and causes, and proposes ways to deal with and adapt to it better. The pillars of the session would be: (i) how ‘big data’ can help us deal with drought variability; (ii) how crop models can help us deal with GxExMxS interactions; (iii) how [...]

Session 4 : Increasing the efficiency of water use with a farm system focus

2022-05-27T16:48:48+00:00

 This session has a crop / cropping system perspective and focuses on avenues to increase return on limited water. It includes dual purpose crops aspects where crop output is also fodder or ecosystemic services and adds to economic return. It goes beyond WUE/TE and also includes crop water foot print considerations in farming systems. It includes presentations on [...]

Session 3 : Increasing water use efficiency with a crop focus

2022-05-27T16:49:56+00:00

This session has a plant / crop physiology/ breeding perspective and focuses on the mechanistic aspects that drive the productive processes in the plants, from those driving efficiency aspects, to those driving growth, light capture and senescence, and to those driving crop phenological development, providing insight on genotype X environment interactions at play. It then includes TE/WUE aspects, [...]

Session 2: Maximizing water access / availability to plant

2022-05-27T16:44:00+00:00

This session will review the recent advance in root research but will go beyond roots and will more broadly address the question of soil water availability to the crop. It would tackle the forthcoming trends of less frequent rains with higher intensities, the need to maximize soil recharge, the optimization of plant – soil - microbiome interactions and [...]

Session 1 : Combating drought : a multi-dimensional challenge

2022-05-27T16:47:25+00:00

 This session aims at a broad view on drought issues (on climate change, soil, global water reserves, etc…). 1a- The first key note will look at drought from the lens of small holder / African farming system, in a context of absence of safety nets (banks, credit/insurance systems, etc…), the general lack of infrastructure, the question of input [...]
