Article
Plant invasion may have significant ecological and socio-economic impacts across agroecologies. Chromolaena odorata (Asteraceae) is one of the world’s most invasive plants albeit it is considered a suitable fallow plant in West Africa. However, its impacts on soil biological processes are poorly understood. This study was conducted in intermingled...

Animal wastes may be promoted as an alternative to mineral fertilizers that remain unaffordable to the overwhelming part of smallholder farmers in Sub-saharan Africa. However for an efficient use, mechanisms that underly their impact on crops should be well understood. This study was conducted in mesocosm to evaluate impacts of two ways of composte...
Article
Natural ecosystem conversion to agriculture is known to alter soil carbon dynamic. Following such conversion in many tropical areas, land undergoes fallow-cropping cycles where fallows are invaded by the pantropical weed Chromoleana odorata. This study was undertaken in the forest-savanna interface area of Côte d'Ivoire to evaluate the impact of th...

Poultry litter is increasingly used as organic amendment in market gardening in Côte d’Ivoire. To know about the sustainability of this practice, its impacts on soil quality should be known. This study aimed at assessing the effect on soil fertility of composted poultry litter addition for 16 years following two distinct ways, and identifying soil...
