A Non-governmental organization, The Presbyterian Agricultural Station (PAS), is working to support rural farmers in the production of food and sustainable income security practices.
NGO gave the support through the provision of incorporated agricultural advisory services in the Garu-Tempane District of the Upper East Region.
Manager of the PAS, Mr Solomon Atigah, said the Station is working to promote Food Security and fair and sustainable income.
He said at Garu during an interview to media that, besides the training and supporting 125 Households with seedlings in 5 communities, the station has also supported 65 men and women with various inputs including organic manure, ploughing services, fertilizers and seeds and pesticides also.
He told the Station started on the move through its food security and environment facility, a sub project under the station, to provide sustainable farming techniques to farmers in rural communities.
The project has led to capacity building activities in various households on appropriate animal husbandry practices such as records keeping, feeding and housing treatment among others.
It also supported 50 households on ways to improve on the nurturing of small ruminants.
Manager of the PAS Mr Atigah said the farmer only has to dig holes with the Zai-Micro, in between the crops and bury the manure or the fertilizer and it would automatically spread through the crops for growth.
