OPPEN M. von ;


Population pressure forces more and more farmers to cultivate drylands without access to supplementary resources of land for grazing or fallowing or of water for irrigation. Agricultural researchers at national and international levels have been called upon to develop productive and stable systems for dryland agriculture in the semi-arid tropics. The paper assesses the efforts which the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) is making. - (l'A.)
