La culture durable de l’arbre fourrager Samata à Madagascar

Ce film montre l'utilisation durable et de la technique de multiplication de boutures de l'arbre Samata avec l'objectif de la fourniture à long terme de plus de fourrage pour le bétail afin de réduire la pression sur la végétation naturelle. Le film était produit par SuLaMa (Sustainable Landmanagement in south-western Madagascar) et WOCAT.

The succulent evergreen tree Euphorbia stenoclada (“samata”) is the most important dry season fodder resource on the coastal plains grazing grounds in the Mahafaly Plateau region. This video shows the propagation of “samata” cuttings for long-term provision of supplementary livestock fodder to reduce the pressure on natural vegetation. The film was produced by SuLaMa and WOCAT.

Rotational grazing supported by additional water points

Since the introduction of pasture management two years ago soil erosion has decreased and areas affected by past erosion processes have improved. Additionally to the rotational grazing system, water points were installed to water the animals during dry periods.
