Soil Testing...A Growing Success!
Our agriculturalist's vision has been to not only share his faith in Christ and uplift the standard of living of the poor Nepali farmer, but also to make farming a profitable business in Nepal.
- In reviewing our data over the past 3 years, we see more of the young people with basic education (grade 10) staying in the villages and learning how to earn a living and assisting their families rather than migrating to the overcrowded cities where there are only rumors of jobs. Through mushroom and other cash crop training and production, we are steering the farmers down the path of sustainability.
Using technologically appropriate rice planting techniques first developed in the Philippines, our agriculturalist and his assistants in the regional farmer field schools have incorporated this training, in coordination with the composting training using Effective Microorganisms (EM).
