Farmers sensitization on fertilizer application


Chilungamo is a group consists of 12 members in Chipote village. Although there were some problems which they were facing with plants germination, they planted their maize.

Weeding has been done in most of the fields. Only 3 beneficiaries have not yet applied fertilizer. These 3 farmers removed all their plants because were of stunted growth so they decided to replant.

With good rains which came on 11/01/2012, all plants have germinated well. Some of the beneficiaries have already applied CHITOWE. For those who did not mix CHITOWE and CAN, were advised to apply CAN after 3 weeks and Agronomist, John Martin advised them to make sure that their fields are free from weeds.

Due to climate change, these farmers also had another option of planting a cash crop which is cotton. Others also planted tomato and groundnuts.

In this village fields looks promising if rain continues to come they will have a good harvest.
