    Farmers’ knowledge of soil fertility and local management strategies in Tigray, Ethiopia1 Introduction1 The importance of local knowledge Soil fertility is declining in many parts of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) (Stoorvogel et al., ). One of the major constraints to crop production faced by smallholder subsistence. A sound knowledge of the soil and rainfall pattern and development of a suitable farming system are pre-requisite for maintenance of soil fertility and high crop yields under continuous.
