Soil conservation is vital to food production and human preservation. Ongoing degradation of soil resources and minerals, including as a result of poor management practices pose a problem for the future and the ability of our earth to feed the world. At Propcom Mai-karfi, we have partnered with a number of private companies to train farmers on cultivating with minimal soil disturbance, on the improved and appropriate use of fertilizers, on practicing intercropping or crop rotation and on good agricultural practices which improve crop yields whilst maintaining or improving soil productivity.
It is World Soil Day today, and the theme this year is “Caring for the Planet starts from the Ground”. We encourage everyone to play a role in caring for the ground. Happy World Soil Day!!
