Relational database development, population and use

ISRIC trained 19 specialists from IFDC East Africa and partners in the use of a relational database for agronomic field trial data that is being developed by ISRIC for IFDC as part of the project Geospatial Farm Fertlizer Analysis. The training was held in Kigali, Rwanda from 2 until 6 February 2015. The programme alternated between lectures and computer practicals. Participants were introduced to relational database theory and SQL for querying, which has been practiced on the agronomic database. Furthermore, participants entered agronomic field trial data that they brought to the training.
