Book Release: Soils of the Ethiopian Highlands - Geomorphology and Properties by Dr. Eyasu Elias

This book presents soil characterization, classification and mapping, along with results of testing the new fertilizer blend formulae, in 30 high potential highland woredas selected for the Agricultural Growth Programme (AGP). Resulting landscape-soil type characterization and maps published in this volume contribute towards the national effort of transforming the soil fertility sector of Ethiopia. The book has detailed chapters on the character of Ethiopia's most prevalent soils: Vertisols, Nitisols, Leptosols, Cambisols and Luvisols. The book is the fruit of a Dutch-funded collaborative research project, ‘Capacity Building for Scaling Up of Evidence-Based Best Practices for Increased Agricultural Production in Ethiopia (CASCAPE for short). The book was launched officially on September 30th, 2016 at Harmony Hotel in Addis Abeba.
