First field day using 100% Kamba language (Samson spoke)



We had 46 smallholder farmers visit today, great group, Ausquest's Samson did all the talking in the Kamba language.
We looked at our commercial chickpea crop then we visited our Admin managers crop of yellow beans.
Showing that it's possible to practice conservation farming on a 1 hectare field and produce great crops.
David's yellow beans look very good considering we have only recieved about 50% of our annual rainfall to date.

  1. When you combine harvest the chickpeas and greengrams, do you shred the straw? Can i buy it and bale it as fodder for ruminants? rmunuve@gmail.com

  2. Hi Mutuku,
    After the combine harvest the chickpeas and Greengrams the "Straw"(Residue) is spread by the Combine over the harvested area, this is a key principle of zero till/conservation farming.
    Residue from the Crops is critical to our farming system to "feed" our soil biology, improve water infiltration plus plus.
    Sorry about that but our soils need feeding also.
