What Is Crop Rotation And Why Is It Important

Crop rotation is the practice of growing different crops throughout the year, or from one year to the next, in order to improve soil fertility, control pests, and a variety of other benefits. Most small-scale Zambian farmers are seasonal farmers, therefore, do not practice crop rotation. They use pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides.

How to grow potatoes in bags

What I love about potatoes is that they can grow almost anywhere, even with limited space. You can grow them in reusable potato growbags or sacks(mumasaka) which you can find anywhere. These are easy to place on a balcony, patio, greenhouse or just in your backyard. What’s more, they make harvesting pretty easy!
