Description

 

Ethiopian farming lands are decreasing fertility and farmers have limited access to information about production and use of farm inputs. Chemical fertilizer technologies are not affordable to the average farmers and their environmental and socio-economic effects on the long term are questionable.

The integration of local rock dust in the composting farm waste process offers a powerful instrument to poor farmers to increase the fertility of their land and move one step forward towards food security.

The primary goal of the trainings is to train farmers and local extensionworkers. The training shows how to process locally available vegetable and mineral from mining wastes (rock dust) to produce high value organic

fertilizers. 

 

Waste materials from farms and households are abundant and available at little or no cost. Especially women in rural areas are familiar with fermentation processes since they brew beer and honey-wine. These types of skills will facilitate the dissemination of these technologies also based on fermentation.

 

Help us to reach more farmers!
