As an Extension Officer, Climate Change Champion, or a farmer, are you proud of the management of your maize field today?

πŸƒSuccessful weed control is important for achieving maximum yield in crop production
🌿 Uncontrolled weeds can lead to yield losses of maize up to 30% or, in some cases, even 91% of the potential yield
🌿 Uncontrolled weeds contribute to the weed seed bank
🌿 Depending on the species, seeds dropped in one season can remain viable and come up in subsequent season

πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Do not wait till the entire field becomes weedy to start controlling weeds
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Check for weedy spots and pull by hand
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Slash with a cutlass or remove with the hoe and spread the mulch under the plants

IN ALL CASES, STOP WEEDS AT THE RIGHT TIME TO KEEP YOUR CROP HEALTHY.

The action of a farmer can help maintain or destroy the productivity of the soil. Therefore, before a farmer leaves home to go to the farm on any particular day, he or she has to make sure that the farm activity to be done on that day should result in multiples of the following:

πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Maintenance of active biological life
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Ability to control erosion sufficiently
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Retention of organic matter in the soil
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Maintenance and improvement of soil physical properties
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Maintenance of appropriate levels of nutrients in the soil
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Conservation of soil water
πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Moderation of soil temperature
