Grow row by row (cereals) film – from Fighting Striga series

By planting both crops at higher densities and in separate rows, and by applying some organic and mineral fertilizer, they harvest more and reduce damage by the parasitic weed striga. It is one of the strategies of integrated striga and soil fertility management or ISFM. This is 1 of 10 films from the “Fighting Striga” series.
