Chiradzulu farmers in manure making


As the next growing season approaches, Chiradzulu District Agriculture Office has started preparing farmers by teaching them how to make manure and use different technologies of irrigation.

Land Resource Conservation Officer for Chiradzulu District, Ch imwemwe Har a , said that knowledge of farming practices they are imparting to the farmers will enable them to realise bumper yields this year.

“When organic manure is mixed up with chemical fertiliser, they harvest more, hence we thought it wise to share such knowledge with them as the growing season approaches,” Hara said.


Mpenga Irrigation Scheme in the area of Traditional Authority Likoswe is where the farmers are being drilled in the importance of using local manure and new irrigation technologies.

Agriculture experts, who are conducting the training, believe that early preparation of land will give the farmers ample time to prepare for onset of rains.

On Wednesday, the experts called upon farmers to showcase how they are preparing and also to share knowledge with those who have not yet started.


The farmers are encouraged to make their land fertile by adding more local manure and also to take advantage of the nearby Chisombezi River to irrigate as they are waiting for the rain season.

One of the beneficiaries, Martha Gift, said her land lost its fertility, hence mixing local and organic manure helps to enrich their soil.
