It is estimated that about 75% of the population of sub-Saharan Africa lives in arid and semi-arid areas that cover about 75% of sub-Saharan Africa. These areas are characterized by low soil chemical fertility and low annual rainfall that is poorly distributed (Maitima et al., 2009; Mubaya et al., 2010; Mugabe, 2011). Under this situation agricultural productivity by small scale farmers is very low resulting both in food and income insecurity leading to poverty (Majule, 2010).
