  • Temporal Forecast of Maize Production in Tanzania: An Autoregressive
           Integrated Moving Average Approach

    • Authors: Yohana Maiga
      Abstract: This paper aims to model and forecast maize production in Tanzania, emphasizing its crucial contribution to the agricultural sector. Utilizing secondary data on annual maize production in Tanzania from 1961 to 2021, measured in tonnes and sourced from the FAO database, the study employs statistical techniques such as unit root tests, the ARIMA model, and the Ljung-Box test for a comprehensive analysis. The optimal model for forecasting maize production in Tanzania is identified as ARIMA (5,1,5), and the adequacy assessment confirms its effectiveness in predicting maize production values. The ten-year forecast reveals an intermittent pattern, offering valuable insights into anticipated trends. While not explicitly developing an existing theory, this research enhances the understanding of maize production dynamics in Tanzania through the application of advanced statistical methods. Policymakers, agricultural stakeholders, and researchers can leverage these findings to enhance agricultural productivity and food security in Tanzania.

  • Analysis of the Management of Cereal Crop Residues on Farms to Optimise
           Cattle Feed in the Western Cotton Growing Zone of Burkina Faso

    • Authors: Belem Adama; Ouédraogo-Koné Salifou, Koulibaly Bazoumana, Traoré Dramane, Traoré Mamadou
      Abstract: Crop residues are insufficiently valorised by farmers in western Burkina Faso, while cattle face a shortage of forage. The aim of this study was to analyse the management of cereal crop residues in cotton-cereal farming to optimise their use as feed for draught cattle. A sample of 72 cotton farmers was selected from nine villages in the study area by the stratification method and interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire. The quantities of cereal crop residue biomass collected by farmers were assessed directly in the field. The results showed that maize and sorghum stalks were predominantly used in cattle feed (86.1 and 90.3%), composting (50 and 44.4%), and mulching (26.9 and 25%), respectively. The average quantities of cereal crop residues stored were 0.83, 0.16, and 1.19 tonnes of dry matter (tDM) for crop farmers, livestock breeders, and agro-pastoralists, respectively, with respective fodder balances of -3.99, -29.05, and -16.99 Tropical Cattle Units (TCU) for the use of cattle, or -0.88, -0.38, and -1.81 TCU for the use of draught cattle during the lean season. Concentrated feed use was 0.20, 0.05, and 0.21 kg/cattle/day; respectively. The main factors influencing the quantities of cereal residues stored on the farms were the size of the cultivated areas and the farmers’ capacity for transportation. Provision of transport equipment and storage infrastructure would therefore appear to be a solution that could improve the level of fodder residue storage, particularly for draught oxen.

  • Impact of Inflation on Economic Growth: Evidence from Tanzania

    • Authors: Yohana Maiga
      Abstract: This empirical study investigates the impact of inflation on economic growth in Tanzania, aiming to provide insights for policymakers on maintaining macroeconomic stability. Utilizing a quantitative research design, the study analyzes secondary data spanning 32 years (1990-2021) through reduced-form regression and co-integration analysis techniques. The findings reveal a significant negative correlation between inflation and economic growth, indicating that higher inflation rates are associated with lower GDP growth. However, no long-term relationship or co-integration between inflation and economic growth is found. This study contributes to the existing literature by providing empirical evidence on the negative impact of inflation on economic growth in Tanzania, emphasizing the importance of price stability for sustainable economic growth. The findings underscore the need for policymakers to prioritize effective monetary policies while promoting investment and productivity to ensure sustained economic growth.

  • Empirical Approach to Modelling and Forecasting Inflation using ARIMA
           Model: Evidence from Tanzania

    • Authors: Yohana Marwa Maiga
      Abstract: This study investigates the dynamics of the inflation rate (INFL) in Tanzania spanning from 1990 to 2021 using advanced time series analysis techniques. The dataset sourced from the World Bank online database serves as the basis for analytical exploration. Initially, the Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) model is applied to understand underlying patterns in the INFL data. Transitioning to Seasonal ARIMA (SARIMA) modeling encounters challenges due to the absence of pronounced seasonality or clear trends. Unit root tests, including the Augmented Dickey-Fuller (ADF) and Phillips-Perron (PP) tests, assess the stationarity of the data. Following the identification of non-stationarity, differencing is employed to achieve stationarity. Estimation of ARIMA models (ARIMA (1,1,1) and ARIMA (2,1,1)) is conducted, with diagnostic checks confirming the suitability of the ARIMA (1,1,1) model. The study contributes to the understanding of inflation dynamics and facilitates evidence-based economic policymaking in Tanzania.

  • The Impact of Agricultural Productivity on Economic Growth in Africa

    • Authors: Yohana Maiga
      Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between agricultural productivity and economic growth in five African countries: Tanzania, Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, and South Africa. Secondary data from reputable sources are analyzed using statistical tests and regression models. The findings indicate that agriculture significantly contributes to Africa's economic growth. South Africa exhibits the highest agricultural productivity, followed by Morocco, Kenya, Ghana, and Tanzania. However, despite their agricultural strengths, South Africa and Morocco have relatively lower contributions to economic growth due to other factors like low employment rates. Ghana and Kenya show comparable performance, while Tanzania lags behind despite experiencing economic growth and having a high employment rate. It is emphasized that economic growth is influenced by various factors beyond agriculture, and countries with high agricultural productivity should diversify their economies and address other determinants of growth. Policy measures to strengthen the agricultural sector and promote diversification are crucial for sustainable economic development in Africa.

  • Influence of Terrestrial Parameters on the Ecophysiological Composition of
           Young Plants Kahya Senegalensis in Saline Environment

    • Authors: Willian Viana Campos; José Teixeira Filho, Alcebíades Rebouças São José
      Abstract: This study aims at analyzing the behavior of young African mahogany plants in a saline environment, focusing on perceptions related to transpiration, photosynthetically active radiation and water potential. The experiment was conducted in drainage lysimeters, using different salinity levels of irrigation water. Environmental data, such as photosynthetically active radiation, water potential and electrical conductivity, were collected to investigate their influence on the transpiration of African mahogany plants. The research was carried out in an experimental field in the northeast region of Brazil, over a period of four months, with young African mahogany plants (Khaya senegalensis), using water with an electrical conductivity of 0.5 dS.m -1 (control treatment); 1.25 dS.m -1; 2 dS.m -1; 2.75 dS.m -1; 3.5 dS.m -1; 4.25 dS.m -1 and 5 dS.m -1 in a total of seven treatments, with three replications and 21 experimental units (plants). Plant transpiration was measured using a steady-state diffusion porometer. The electrical conductivity of the irrigation water was monitored using a portable conductivity meter. The results presented in the analyzes indicate a complex and interdependent relationship between leaf transpiration, photosynthetically active radiation and plant water potential. Leaf transpiration is influenced by variations in solar radiation, which plays a crucial role in regulating this process.  It was observed that leaf transpiration is lower in the morning, from 7 to 9 am and in the late afternoon, from 5 to 6 pm, when incident solar radiation is at lower values.
