Water your crops efficiently using drip irrigation

Drip irrigation is a climate smart irrigation system that delivers water directly to the plant roots.

In most parts of Kenya, irrigation remains a necessity in crop production. Even with the rainfall, some crops still need irrigation especially in the arid and semi-arid regions.

Planting different trees has great value to ecosystem

Deforestation affects not only the forest cover of Kenya and in the long-term the water conservation. The biodiversity in our forests and in the semi-arid areas, that means, the great varieties of different trees, especially the indigenous ones, is in danger.

Take care of your soil to increase land productivity

Farmers rarely take care of their soils. Good farming practices can restore and build soil fertility, increasing crop yields and income for the farmer.

It is easy to establish a Push-Pull plot using Brachiaria grass

Brachiaria is a good alternative to Napier grass when used in push-pull plots since it is drought tolerant and not prone to diseases. Brachiaria grass is more nutritious, possessing 12 per cent protein at harvest unlike Napier, whose protein content diminishes after about four months.

Oasis garden ensures vegetable supply

An oasis garden can provide you with vegetables and fruits all year round, especially during the dry season when vegetables are in short supply. The unpredictable and errant weather changes leave many farmers unsure of when to expect rains. Rainfall is the main source of water for irrigation for many farmers.
