FAO - ZAMBIA Dec 2010 (24/303)
14 December 2010, Mazabuka District, Zambia. Mbiya Camp, Harry Kandundu's Farm. Harry was a lead farmer under the FAO Conservation Agriculture scheme in 2009/10 and brought in a bumper maize crop. This year he expanded the fields under CA, with still a few issues - such as the correct application of herbicides, but he is using a mixed method of basin making and ripping with a Magoye ripper. Residues from the previous year's harvest is left on the fields.
