Crop yields in southern Africa are generally low compared to the world average and the average of developing regions. Thus, this calls for the identification of more sustainable strategies that are capable of increasing yields. Amongst the possible strategies is conservation agriculture (CA). This data set emanates from a study that seeks to investigate the effects of animal traction CA technologies as compared to the traditional farmers' practice (conventional tillage). Also superimposed to the treatments are rotations of maize with a grain legume (cowpea, soybean). The study is carried out in various communities of Zimbabwe. The data set presents yields for maize and the legumes from these sites over 15 seasons (2005-2019).
