Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Programme (TSBF) TSBF wasestablished in under the patronage of the Man and Biosphereprogramme of Unesco and the Decade of the Tropics initiative of theInternational Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS).

The objective ofthe programme is to develop appropriate and innovative approachesfor sustaining tropical soil fertility through the management. During earlyBMGF commissioned the Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Institute of CIAT (TSBF-CIAT) to develop a series of concept papers on Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM).

These reports were intended for the Foundation’s use in designing an African Soil Health Initiative.

Introduction. Maintaining the soil chemical fertility is a key prerequisite to sustain crop productivity in the tropics. Several studies perceive that soil fertility decline is widely spread in tropical regions and that it is caused by inadequate nutrient replenishment and high losses as compared to natural ecosystems.

en Mike Swift, Director of the Nairobi-based Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Institute of CIAT (TSBF), which is co-ordinating the "Conservation and Sustainable Management of Below-Ground Biodiversity" project, said that the sites in the countries chosen were thought to be among those with the highest below ground biodiversity.

AfNet is the single most important implementing agency of Tropical Soil Biology and Fertility Institute of the International Centre for Tropical .Although the biota comprise only a small fraction of soil mass, they play a crucial role in providing favourable conditions for plant growth.

The microorganisms and micro- meso- and macro-fauna that make up the soil biota are essential for soil fertility and the promotion of plant-soil interactions.Many studies done in Tropical conditions have shown the effects of weed control by different methods on soil chemical attributes.
