Blurb/Shorttext:
This study investigated the Soil conservation farming is a farming practice which improvesyield, or reliability, or decreases the inputs of labour or fertilizer, or anything farming practice leading to improved land husbandry, and whose foundation is soil conservation. Soil conservation farming was conceptualized as crop rotation, reduced tillage, mulching, and green manuring. The practice of soil conservation farming had decreased across the world especially in Africa. In Somaliland, soil conservation farming was relatively low, yet Somaliland had one of the highest levels of land degradation in the world. In fact, in Somaliland, the use of land resource is stretched beyond the land’s ability to recover, leading to land degradation. Yet just 10% of small-scale farmers practiced crop rotation while green manure, mulching and reduced tillage were neglected. Moreover, the challenges faced by small-scale farmers in practicing soil conservation farming had not been investigated. Several factors had been pointed to as causing low adoption of soil conservation farming practices, but key ones had not been empirically isolated.
