A pilot survey of selenium status and its geospatial variation among children and women in three rural districts of Zimbabwe (2023)
Journal Article

Introduction: Selenium (Se) deficiency is increasingly recognized as a public health problem in sub-Saharan Africa. Methods: The current cross-sectional study assessed the prevalence and geospatial patterns of Se deficiency among children aged 6–5...

Micronutrients and socio-demographic factors were major predictors of anaemia among the Ethiopian population (2023)
Journal Article

Anemia is characterized by low hemoglobin (Hb) concentration. Despite being a public health concern in Ethiopia, the role of micronutrients and non-nutritional factors as a determinant of Hb concentrations has been inadequately explored. This study f...

Opportunities for enhancing the climate resilience of coffee production through improved crop, soil and water management (2023)
Journal Article

Climate change is adversely affecting coffee production, impacting both yields and quality. Coffee production is dominated by the cultivation of Arabica and Robusta coffee, species that represent 99% of production, but both will be affected by climat...

Biochar application to temperate grasslands: challenges and opportunities for delivering multiple ecosystem services (2023)
Journal Article

Grasslands (natural, semi-natural and improved) occupy approximately one-third of the terrestrial biosphere and are key for global ecosystem service provision, storing up to 30% of soil organic carbon (SOC). To date, most research on soil carbon (C)... Read More about Biochar application to temperate grasslands: challenges and opportunities for delivering multiple ecosystem services.

Genotypic Response of Finger Millet to Zinc and Iron Agronomic Biofortification, Location and Slope Position towards Yield (2023)
Journal Article

The present study aimed to investigate the influence of genotypic differences on responses to zinc and iron agronomic biofortification among yields of finger millet. A field experiment was conducted over two seasons in farmers’ fields in Ethiopia (20...
