Climate change and sustainable rice production systems in Benin: Ecological intensification through the use of Sesbania rostrata (Bremek. & Oberm.) as previous agroforestry lowland rice

In Benin a cause of rice deficit is due to the continued decline in soil fertility, but also to the effects of climate change. This study aims to maximize the effectiveness of chemical fertilizers improved Sesbania rostrata fallow to improve rice yields lowland to prevent food generic and poverty in rural areas while mitigating risk climate change on agricultural production.
