SUSTAINABLE LAND USE AND CONSERVATION INITIATIVES (SLUCI)

Name of Research Group: SUSTAINABLE LAND USE AND CONSERVATION INITIATIVES (SLUCI)

 

Focal Area: Southeastern Nigeria

Base Faculty: Faculty of Agriculture, Uiversity of Nigeria, Nsukka

 

Justification

The concept of land has been defined as the area of the earth’s surface the characteristics of which embrace all reasonably stable, or predictable cyclic attributes of the atmosphere vertically above and below this area including those of the atmosphere, the soil and underlying geology, the hydrology, the plant and animal populations, and the results of past and present human activity, to the extent that these attributes exert a significant influence on the present and future uses of the land by man (FAO, 1976). However, land use types differ from one location to another depending on the immediate needs of the government, community or individual concerned. According to (FDALR, 1996), in Nigeria, land is used for agriculture, urban development, industrial and commercial purposes in that order of decreasing importance.

Land is a natural resource and its components must be conserved if any nation must make any progress in any facet of its life be it agriculture, industry, health etc. Judicious land use and conservation require that research agenda be developed so as ensure sustainable use of the land resources.

 

Research Focus

  1. Identification and inventory of land degradational processes and conservation measures
  2. Identification of sustainable land use systems
  3. Soil management for sustainable agricultural production
  4. Industrial land use and       impact on environment
  5. Increasing Crop and animal Production towards ensuring food security

 

 

Proposed Research Topics

 

  1. Environmental and Socio-economic Implications of Cattle Grazing in Southeastern Nigeria

Principal Investigator: Professor Charles L,A, Asadu

 

CONCEPT NOTE

            Consistent cattle grazing has been observed to constitute a source of quarrels between the resident farmers and the cattle owners (Fulani nomads) in most subhumid savannah areas of south-eastern Nigeria. A research proposal is here thus presented with the objective of assessing the impact of the practice of consistent grazing and the presence of the Fulanis on the environment, socio-cultural and health aspects of the people of the area with a view to formulating policy strategies for alleviating identified problems towards enhancing mutual co-existence of the people in the area.

The study which is expected to last for 25 months will cover soil studies including soil erosion; socio-cultural and health aspects of overgrazing or otherwise; land use and policy recommendations. The results of the studies are expected to benefit both the local farmers, the fulanis and other stakeholders in environmental issue as the government will use them to formulate appropriate policies that would enhance the cordial relationship among the people of the area. Such policies may also be extrapolated possibly with modification to other areas with similar environmental problems. The research results will also be presented at the end of the local authorities during a seminar planned to mark the end of the study. The study will also emphasise environmental education to enlighten the people on the dangers of environmental degradation.

Research Problems

Cattle grazing in some parts of South Eastern Nigeria have resulted in severe environmental degradation which has affected agricultural production, health standard and resulted to some security risks including socio-cultural conflicts between the original inhabitants of the area and the nomadic cattle rearers.

The people of South Eastern Nigeria are mainly farmers producing food crops such as rice, yams, cassava, beans etc in large scale due to the favourable biophysical conditions of the landscape. The land tenure system practiced in this part of the country empowers ownership of land by individuals and families for the purpose of food production. Each families or individual strives to conserve some portions of its/his land for cultivation and ensures the security of the farms from domestic animals. To this extent, during planting seasons, grazing of animals is restricted to certain agreed areas different from crop fields so as to avoid the damage of the latter by the animals. In most areas strict rules exist to check this practice.

The Fulanis of the Northern Nigeria, on the other hand are principally cattle reares, because of the unfavorable climate which does not favour availability of pastures during most parts of the year, those nomadic cattle rearers migrate down the southern and eastern part of the country for cattle grazing. In so doing, these cattle rearers often neglect the existing local rules governing the animal rearing to the extent that not only are the portions of land conserved for planting rendered infertile through overgrazing but the growing crops in the farms are damaged by cattle. This competing demand for land use in this part of the country has often resulted to:

  • Conflicts which in some cases have led to bloodshed and often ended up in law courts;
  • Unfavourable working environment on the part of both the cattle rearers and the native food growers in the areas;
  • Environmental pollution through land degradation, river pollution and the attendant health hazards.
  • Security risks

The research will therefore, address the following problems/issues

  • Identification of areas covered by cattle grazing in South Eastern Nigeria and demarcating those areas or portions of land thought to have been overgrazed. This will enable a relative comparism between the findings in such areas. The selected areas in Isi-Uzo and Uzo-Uwani have been noted to be covered by cattle grazing usually herded by the Fulanis. However, the erosion problems, socio-cultural conflicts and some health problems observed had not been associated with cattle overgrazing in all the villages in the area. Thus the need to isolate or demarcate where such problems exist and also to assess their degrees.
  • Inventory and study of soil erosion sites related to overgrazing. Some observed erosion sites on the area have been associated with cattle grazing. The likelihood of such overgrazed areas turning into non-productive lands in the future has been expressed by the farmers. This is because some of the areas now support scanty vegetative growth and only shrubs survive there.
  • The sociocultural conflicts between the resident farmers and the Fulani nomads. The Fulanis migrated from the northern part of the country and have different sociocultural and religious backgrounds from the indigenes in the area. The indigenes belong to the Igbo speaking tribe in the country and seem to claim ownership of the land. There are problems associated with the differences in their ways of life.
  • The problems of pollution of rivers and streams used by the people arising from the dungs (faeces) deposited by the cattle. During both the rainy and dry seasons, the cattle drink from the rivers and streams and in the course pollute the water. Again the cattle dungs are carried to the streams by surface runoff which is facilitated by virtually bare soil surface resulting from de-vegetation by overgrazing. This needs to be investigated because the people depend entirely on such rivers and streams for their domestic uses including drinking as there is no pipe-borne water in the area.

The presence bovine rotavirus which causes severe diarrhoea has been established in Adani which is one of the major towns in Uzo-Uwani area. According to health officials in Eha-Amufu and Ikem areas of Isi-Uzo local authority, the spread of cholera and gastroenteritis epidemics in those towns at the beginning of the rainy season in 1991 and 1992 during which about 500 people lost their lives and over 5,000 people were vaccinated was attributed to the water drawn from Abonyi River which was polluted by dungs from donkeys and cattle. Tse-tse flies which transmit (Trypanosome) the casual organism for sleeping sickness have also been observed to affect the inhabitants and this has been attributed to the presence of cattle.

  1. e) Crop damage by the cattle would need to be investigated and evaluated in the affected areas. Though this may be obvious where there is no controlled grazing, this has not been established and evaluated in the areas. The selected areas for the study are known for their food crops production potentials. It is therefore of interest to the government as inappropriate policy strategy would seriously affect the food supply level in the south-eastern part of Nigeria. Hence one of the major issues of concern is to forestall the eminent danger of drastic food shortages and environmental hazards that are likely if the grazing habit is not controlled. This is because cattle overgrazing tend to run counter to the government policy on agricultural, environment and health. The study areas form part of the food basket of the nation.

On how the information from the above will help contribute to the solution of the problems of consistent grazing in the area, policies based on them would be encouraged to be implemented by local authorities and the people concerned will be educated along the recommendations to be made.

 

  1. Assessing Impact of land Use Intensification on Soil productivity and Food Production in Southeastern Nigeria

Principal Investigator: Dr P.I. Ezeaku

 

Concept Note

Upsurge interest in the variability and dynamic change of soil properties and their relationship with soil productivity started at a macro-scale of tropical soils (Beckett and Webster, 1982) and inter-tropical areas (Lal, 1990). Currently, Southeastern Nigerian region has received much less attention in these areas of assessment under field level. Also, information on the key soil properties that impact on agronomic productivity and the extent of potential degradation (vulnerability) rates of the soil properties are pausive.

Thus, accurate quantitative information on the nexus between land use intensification effects on soil quality, productivity and environment of selected areas is desired so as to restore, sustain and enhance the productive and protective functions of the ecosystems, improve food and fibre production, the socio-economic wellbeing of the citizens for poverty reduction and social equity as well as preserve unique landscape and globally important biodiversity.

Against these backgrounds, the objectives of this study would be to: i) quantify the amount of soil fertility properties sequestered under different land uses on a hillslope over time, ii) identify key soil properties that impact on soil quality and agronomic productivity, ii) examine soil property-toposequence inter-relationships, iii) determine potential degradation rates for some measured soil properties under different land use types and slope position, and establish green soil conservation strategies compatible with climate change coping mechanisms .

  1. Crop Varietal selection suitable for different Agro-ecological Zones of Southeastern Nigeria

Principal Investigator: Dr S. Eze

 

Concept Note

Agricultural productivity of any zone or location is a function of the Climate of that zone or location. According to Mba (2009), climate refers to the condition of the atmosphere in a region or area over a long period of time. Because climate varies from place to place, it determines the distribution of plant and animal species, the soil and so the type of agriculture that can be practiced in different agro-ecological zones. Although, technology which refers to the use of science by man has made possible significant modifications, for example the use of irrigation and green house has affected the practice of agriculture in many aspects and zones. In southeastern Nigeria, facilities for adoption of these technologies are not always available and/or affordable to the resource poor farmers, therefore, the need for identification and selection of crops suitable for different agricultural zones.

XVI   THESIS/DISSERTATION

1.B. Agric. [Soil Sci.]: Research Topic: Soils in relation to their underlying geological materials in the derived savanna zone of Anambra state Nigeria: 1982. In the study the effects of parent   materials developed from falsebedded sandstones, shales and upper coal measures were         assessed and significant effects of parent materials on such soil properties as texture,               exchangeable bases, acidity and cation exchange capacity were established. The study brought   out the significant effects of parent materials derived from these geological materials on soil   properties in the area.

  1. M.Sc. Soil Science: Research Topic: Pedological studies on six toposequences on three geological formations in eastern Nigeria. 1986. The toposequences were located on soils of uppercoal measures, Imo clay shales and falsebedded sandstones. The effects of topography and agricultural practices were evaluated and strong relationships established from the study.

3.Ph.D. Soil Agronomy: Research Topic: A comparative study and evaluation of yam-zone       soils and the performance of six cultivars of white yam (D. rotundata) in southeastern Nigeria: 1989. The study involved a comprehensive characterization and classification of yam-growing soils in S.E. Nigeria. Field trials were conducted using six popular yam cultivars across the environments. Significant cultivar x environment effects were obtained and the prospects of     introducing exogenous cultivars into new environments were inferred from the extensive study.
