Farmers in mixed crop-livestock systems produce about half of the world’s food. In small holdings around the world, livestock are reared mostly on grass, browse, and nonfood biomass from maize, millet, rice, and sorghum crops and in their turn supply manure and traction for future crops.

Animals act as insurance against hard times and supply farmers with a source of regular income from sales Abstract. Conservation agriculture practices require a critical level of crop residues and cover crops to maintain or enhance soil chemical, physical and biological properties and prevent land degradation.

In many areas of the world, crops and livestock compete for the same resources, and require proper management to meet conservation agriculture :// Crop residues in sustainable mixed crop - livestock farming systems.

Small ruminants consume crop residues, in particular those of groundnuts and cowpeas, which are good quality In view of concerns regarding increasing regulation of concentrated animal feeding operations, long-term sustainability, natural resource degradation, and stability and profitability of farm income, there is a considerable interest in integrated farming systems.

Field Crops Res. – (. Transfer of nutrients and energy via crops and livestock Crop-livestock interactions provide a key to ecological sustainability by intensifying nutrient and energy cycles. Crop residues are an important source of forage in smallholder farming systems. In the early dry season in West Africa, cattle spend up to 80% of grazingDevelopment and application of modem technology for upgrading straw in Europe during the 's has stimulated intense interest in developing countries.

Sincetwenty four international workshops have been held in Africa and Asia to consider research and development on crop residues as feed, with emphasis on improving their intake and digestibility in ruminants by treatment with ammonia Typical South East Asian crop-livestock mixed farming systems (Devendra and Thomas, ) were prevalent for ages in the present study area.
