1.  Country Leader for Soil Infomation System in Sub-Saharan Africa

Posted 10 days ago
Dear Colleagues Agricultural Scientists in Sub-Saharan Africa

We are working on a project to develop a Soil Informatio System System for Sub-Saharan Africa (SISSA), similar to the European soil information system called "LUCA".

We will collect about 2000 geo-referenced soil samples in agricultural fields accross the region and send them to the Soil Laboratory at the Institute for Soil, Climate and Water of the Agricultural Research Council in Pretoria (South Africa) where analyses of soil chemical and physical properties will be done (single lab).

At this stage, we are seeking expression of interest for colleagues willing to join the initiative. We need country leaders who will coordinate the collection of soil samples in each country and ship them to South Africa. 

If you are interested and need details, please contact (in English or French):
