This project tested Nutrient Management Support System (NuMaSS) software and knowledge in different geographical regions in Africa and S.B. Asia to determine under what agro-climatic, socioeconomic conditions NuMaSS and NuMaSS-based knowledge is adopted or adapted locally. Researchers examined the ways NuMaSS and NuMaSS knowledge can improve nutrient management.
The goal of this project is to enable poor people to achieve food security without compromising the sustainability of the environment by testing, comparing, and adapting NuMaSS-based knowledge.
