Farmer’s success in conservation agriculture attracts those struggling in conventional agriculture

“Before conservation agriculture, we could not manage 20 sacks of 90kilogram of unshelled maize from an acre, yet I harvested 21 sacks of the same quantity, this time of shelled maize. My harvest is also increasing as I am getting 35 sacks of 90 kilograms of shelled maize. I have also learnt that I do not have to wait until harvest, as I already have buyers for the soft maize straight from the farm thus, I do not have to wait till the maize is ready for harvest, dry it then sell and this saves me money as well. I am also the one that determines the price the buyers will buy the maize at, and since they know that I produce quality maize, they buy at my set price,” adds Eunice.

It was after undergoing CA technical training that she was able to convert her 6 acres of farmland into mechanized rip lines. Conversely, the majority of farmers in Makandi were reluctant of practicing CA simply because it was a new technique hence opted for a-wait-and-see. However, Madam Tabitha decided to convert her farms to CA which according to her it was a major risk that she never regrets taking.
