Field Actions Science Report | Year: 2016

Due to high demand for food resources as a result of increasing population, the promotion of large-scale crops such as wheat has become essential. Unfortunately, soil infertility and a lack of improved seed are major constraints on the expansion of this crop in Kaziba, a mountainous rural area in South Kivu. The productivity of seven wheat varieties (Farari, Kayira, Kima, Lokale, Mbega, Nyumbu and Popo) was evaluated under organic and mineral fertilizer during the 2013-2014 crop season on poor soil in South Kivu (DR Congo). NPK 17-17-17, farmyard manure and their combination were applied as fertilizers in a split-plot trial design with three replications. The observations focused on the growth and yield parameters, and the results revealed differences between varieties, treatments and interactions. The NPK + farmyard manure treatment gave the highest mean yield (1317.2 kg), Kayira was the most productive variety (1584.2 kg), and the interaction Kayira X farmyard manure was the most effective (2874.9 kg). The variety Kayira would seem to be indicated, with farmyard manure as the recommended fertilizer, being locally accessible and easily usable for promoting wheat in the region. © 2016, Institut Veolia Environnement.

Livestock Research for Rural Development | Year: 2016

This work describes local chicken’s production systems and their constraint and opportunities in low and high land of South-Kivu province in the eastern of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Survey was conducted on 304 chief of households using a structured questionnaire and participatory interviews. This investigation showed that in the lowland, chicken production system is under men control (68.4% of 150) while in highland it is under women control (79.7% of 154). These breeders are married (91.5%), aged of 37.9 ± 10.6 years, mostly having stopped their study at primary school level (42%) and exerting agriculture as main activity (74.8%). Chicken is the principal specie bred with on average 9.7 ± 7.3 heads per household and are local breed (92.5%), raised in divagation (95.7%) with no reproduction control by the breeder (95.7%). Main reason of local chicken production is income generation for household subsistence (42.3%) and their diet is essentially made of the bunch and kitchen scraps (55.1%). These chickens are weaned at 3.6 ± 1.9 months and while used in breeding at 7.6 ± 0.6 months. Each female has 2.7 ± 1.9 laying cycles per year for a period of 18.1 ± 5.5 days giving 14.1 ± 5.4 eggs per female and per cycle. Among them 9.8 ± 2.5 eggs will be hatched for 88.8% of hatching. Newcastle disease is the main health constraint raising twice to 3 times per year while house hygiene is the only prophylactic disease control practices used by farmers (90.8%). Improvements methods are as well proposed. © 2016, Fundacion CIPAV. All right reserved.

Journal of Infection in Developing Countries | Year: 2014

Methodology: Vaginal samples (n = 509) for bacteriological analysis were collected from women in Bukavu, eastern DR Congo, during their third trimester of pregnancy, along with information about age, education and socio-economic status, and medical and obstetric-gynecological history.Results: The overall GBS colonization rate was 20%. Colonization was significantly associated with low education, history of urinary infection during the pregnancy, history of premature childbirth or abortion, and HIV-positive serology, but was not significantly associated with socio-economic level or parity.Conclusions: The GBS colonization rate is similar to that found elsewhere on the continent. Further studies, with follow-up of neonates of infected mothers and evaluation of prevention/treatment strategies, are needed.Introduction: Maternal vaginal colonization by Streptococcus agalactiae (GBS) has an important impact on neonatal health but has not been studied in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The aim of this study was to determine its frequency and influencing factors. © 2014 Mitima et al.
