FARMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US

A number of the testimonies talk of increased agricultural production and improved agricultural practices.

Through the lessons by officials from the department of irrigation, I have learnt a number of modern farming practices including irrigation farming. And as a result, I have made tremendous improvements with my farming.

Maize Farmer

I have doubled my income from farming from the moment I adopted irrigation farming. I grow a number of commercial crops and I harvest more than once for each of the crops hence increasing my income and I am able to support my family.

Commercial farmer

My yield has greatly increased from 20 50 kgs bags to 150 bags per year. This has been the case because with irrigation farming, I do harvest three or four times a year as compared to the time when I was only relying on rain fed farming
