Abstract

Soil fertility in the mid-elevation hillsides of the Cochabamba region of Bolivia has been declining as natural fallow times have been reduced in order to bring more land into crop production. A photothermal model is used to simulate climate conditions for 12 legume cover crops in three hillside locations. Tropical legume crops are found to be suitable at different elevations, from 2,500 m to 3,500 m. - (SLD)
