Land suitability evaluation for rainfed maize production using geospatial technologies in Nzara and Yambio counties, South Sudan

Classifying land based on its suitability for agriculture is crucial for agricultural development and future planning for food production. In this context, a land suitability assessment for rainfed maize varieties was conducted in Sakure and Nginda Payams of Nzara and Yambio counties, covering an area of 47,500 ha. The purpose of this assessment was to create a semi-detailed land suitability map (scale 1:100,000) using...

Response of rainfall variability on the evolution of the vegetative cycle in the Chari-Logone basin (Lake Chad basin)

The Chari-Logone Basin (CLB), encompassing 610,000 km2 as the hydrologically active segment of the Lake Chad basin, is the focal point of this study aiming to characterize the evolution of vegetation cover in response to rainfall. The primary focus relies on spatialized precipitation and NDVI data. Analysis of these spatial rainfall data reveals trends that predominantly align with a south-north gradient typical of the...
