A Livestock Farmer in Kalumbila District – North Western Province has encouraged his fellow farmers to adopt integrated farming which he says increases production.
Chisango Nkonde of Dimbamuntu village says integrated farming were crops and livestock supplement each other with animal droppings used as manure for crops which are also fed to animals.
Mr. Nkonde is inspiring other livestock farmers in the District through his newly adopted farming knowledge he acquired through the training from Trident Foundation of Kalumbila Minerals in partnership with the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock.
He has hosted 50 livestock farmers from within the selected veterinary and agricultural Camps at the animal impacted field’s-field day at his farm in Kalumbila District.
And Trident Foundation Agricultural Livelihood Coordinator Christopher Chenga has praised Mr. Nkonde for inspiring more farmers to diversify and integrate in the agriculture sector.
