Abstract:The majority of sub-Saharan African (SSA) agriculture is rainfed and has low and variable yields. Supplemental irrigation (SI) might be a solution to increase yields and yield stability. The goal of this study is to quantify the potential effect of large-scale implementation of supplemental irrigation on crop yields throughout SSA as well as on the temporal variability of crop yields and the irrigation water volumes required. In this study we defined SI strategies as having the highest marginal water productivity (MWP) ( Δ
