CROP-LIVESTOCK INTERACTION FOR SUSTAINABLE FOOD CROP PRODUCTION IN TROPICAL AFRICA

A system consists of its agro-ecological and socioeconomic components and interactions among them (so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts). The interactions are neither linear nor unidirectional, so a certain degree of change at any point in the system may generate different degrees of change in different directions. Therefore, it is essential that any discussion on sustainable food crop production is conducted within a system’s framework taking into account the interactions of this component with other components. However, we will deal with the interaction of food crop production with another component, livestock production ,and the potentiality of this interaction for sustainable food crop production
