Irrigation Farming

Continuing with our ‘Seeing is Believing’ initiative, two family-farm irrigation co-operatives have been supported in the organic production of rice crops and in diversifying their output with the cultivation of vegetables and growing fruit trees.  Ninety-two farmers were taken to see these initiatives which saw farm production costs reduced by 25% and rice yields up from 6 tons/hectare to 7 tons/hectare.  Thirteen further co-operatives were supported to maximise their land use by growing off-season maize and millet crops.
