Secret to good yield

By simonlungu • 4 weeks ago • 2714 views • 1000 comments

The long rains season will be starting in about two months. Already, farmers have harvested from last year’s season and by April, many will have planted maize. Nonetheless, there are ways you can follow to ensure that by this time next year, your barn will be full of a high maize production.


The first step towards obtaining good maize harvest is ensuring that the farm is well-ploughed and ready for planting. Ploughing should go a depth of at least 20cm and should be conducted two to three weeks before the onset of the rains.


After preparing the land, the farmer should then plan for the planting process by budgeting for and acquiring inputs such as fertiliser and seeds.

There are four important decisions that farmers should make when it comes to choosing fertiliser.


First, fertiliser is chosen depending on the soil type. For sandy soils, NPK fertiliser works better
