Detecting the length of the growing season using Savannah Vegetation Phenology in Karamoja

Penological characteristics of savannah vegetation such as onset and end of photosynthetic activity; have the potential to be used in evaluating effect of environmental changes on plants. This study used phenological characteristics to detect the variations in length of growing season in Karamoja.

The savannah vegetation in Karamoja region showed different phenological characteristics. The spatiotemporal variation in the phonological characteristics of different savannah vegetation can be used to predict the length of growing season in the area. This is important, especially to overcome challenges of climate variability during planting seasons.
