5-Day Small-Scale Farmers Training Week

Do you want to increase your crop yields

We know that most small-scale farmers would like to lower their input costs and increase their crop yields. In this course week, we help farmers understand the value of integrating livestock into their cropping plans. Farmers have used the impact of animals to double crop yields and significantly reduce input costs (when compared to community control fields).The farmers also learn how to plan and manage where livestock are herded in both the growing and non-growing seasons, so that animals remain healthy, safe, and productive, even as they work to heal the land.
