Helping the rice farmers in Ngoketunjia, Cameroon

Training the farmers to make organic compost

One of the major problems that the farmers faced has been in being able to afford fertilizers. A lot of the time the farmers have not been able to apply fertilizers to their farms due to the cost.

With the introduction of SRI, we taught the farmers to use organic composts.

However the farmers faced again faced the problem of acquiring sufficient compost and this time due to the shortage of supply. Our concern is that as the farmers expand on their use of SRI, they will not be able to get the compost that they need.

Therefore in partnership with Forest & Agroforestry Promoters in Ndop, we provided training on making composts.

The farmers have all the materials that they need and with this skill, they will be able to reduce their costs and increase their yields.

1. Demonstration: applying grass and watering

2. Practical: the farmers building the compost pile
