Abstract:Purpose is to report the yield impact of practices 'used by farmers. In other words, to -assess practices in terms used by the research station. The data used are based upon a 207 farm survey of randomly selected farmers in 5 districts of Western Tanzania. Due to the fact that only 5 of the enumerated farmers used fertilizers and only 4 sprayed, it was not possible to incorporate these practices into the study. Consequently, this study focuses primarily upon the relationship between yields time of planting, plant densities, and ridging. Sections: Hypotheses - Empirical results - Conclusions. Ref., tables, notes.
