Sunflower field

In agriculture I favour an integrated approach, as growing crops is never a “stand alone” practice. Agriculture is an enterprise that involves investments in inputs, choices for seed varieties, crop husbandry and product marketing.

To develop appropriate agricultural solutions I work with the local experts to understand the local situation and identify bottlenecks and options for improvement. Working this way I have been envolved in:

  • Promotion of Intercropping systems
  • Soil protection measures
  • Composting and soil improvements
  • Input distribution with local merchants
  • Introduction of crops / varieties
  • Contract farming
  • Zero grazing
