Conservation Farming- Solution for Increased Food Production

Nsugeni Community Based organization believes that Conservative Agriculture (CA) helps to improve soil management practices that minimize the disruption of the soil's structure, composition and natural formation. At our organization, we have seen that conservation farming has the potential to improve crop yields, while improving the long-term environmental and financial sustainability of farming. In doing so, during the month of July/August, (the beginning of the farming season) we conducted a series of training to local rural farmers on how to practice Conservation Farming. Mr. Constantine Mwape, a local farmer provided his skills on how to prepare the land. It is anticipated that 7 community farms will be initiated that will practice CA for improved food production in Mpima Scheme.
