If you go to ECHO category Dryland Farming you read;
“A large part of the surface of the world is arid, characterized as too dry for conventional rain fed agriculture.
Yet millions of people live in such regions,and if current trends in population increase continue, there will soon be millions more.
These people must eat, and the wisest course for them is to produce their own food. ”
It seems amazing to me that there is, in all these years, no Conversation about such subsistence farming! Why is this?
Is it because no-one believes that these subsistence farmers can produce their own food?
But is some countries they are doing just that, on degraded soil, and without any need to know of CA, AE, etc.
You can find out how by visiting the Jack bean project at [www.youtube.com/watch?v=--KdPEKLdbo]
Videos later, we hope, from Uganda/Kenya.
