Farmers in Western Kenya showcase their harvest

Farmers in five African countries, including Kenya, are testing and adapting a system change encompassing conservation agriculture and improved varieties through the Australian-funded SIMLESA program. Here the Liganwa Farmers’ Group are showcasing their crops of maize that have been grown using a new approach that has seen some farmers more than triple their yields even though they’re spending less time in the field.
