On November 28th and 29th, the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) invited youth from AgriProFocus' Youth in Agricultre and Agroecology Networks to learn from project and community experience in implementing climate smart agriculture (CSA) around Doyogena in Southern Ethiopia.
Youth had the opportunity to learn about watershed management, climate smart livestock, and home gardening. Please see the video below to learn about where some of the visiting youth came from, and what they considered to be highlights of their CSA learning visit.
AgriProFocus and the youth that had the opportunity to participate in this learning visit are very grateful for the commitment to youth capacity building and inter-generational learning demonstrated by the CCAFS Programme and by ILRI. We would like to encourage more agriculture proj... Read more
SOIL FERTILITY AND PH TEST
One of the challenges faced by the average farmer is ease of access to info about soil pH, soil fertility and disease incidence in his garden.
For so many, you must have come across say a maize garden having some patches with healthy tall maize and others with stunted looking maize. This is attributable to variations in mineral nutrient distribution.
The good news is that we've built an artificial intelligence capable of diagnosing the actual deficient nutrient.
