✅Mulching creates pleasant conditions for crop growth, especially for dry season cropping.
✅This includes moisture and soil conservation 🔸 temperature moderation reduction in soil compaction🔸 erosion, salinity and weed control etc.
✅Material such as grass, leaves, rice straw and hull, maize husk, groundnut hulls, wood shavings, and livestock manure make fine mulch.
✅ Generally, organic materials that will eventually rot and enrich the soil are best, so farmers can look around their surroundings for mulching materials.
✅ Mulching presents an opportunity for a farmer to make use of waste materials for providing better growing conditions for crops, and at the same time saving labour.

✅ Dry season vegetable farming can bring substantial additional income and provide supplementary food for household consumption.
✅ Water-smart strategies in crop production such as drip irrigation, mulching, composting, cover cropping, cultivating drought-tolerant species among others are more than critical at this period.
✅Following GASIP support to selected communities by the provision of solar-mechanized boreholes and water storage facilities:
 👉🏾 We entreat all supported District Department of Agriculture to facilitate the process of creating water distribution systems in the Conservation Agriculture fields.
👉🏾 We expect Agricultural Extension Agents (AEAs) to lead the other supported groups in developing their own mechanisms system of ensuring full coverage of water on the 2-acre land.
👉🏾 Click here to download a document that can assist interested AEAs in setting up the water distribution systems
👉🏾 Interested Districts can also contact the Crop Officer Adams on 054 044 4449 for technical assistance in this regard.
