Isaac wins projector for ISFM consultation
ASHC is consulting on the style, content and layout of its new cropping guide series.
The series has been produced for extension and covers ISFM and good agricultural practices for growing:
- sorghum and millet-legumes, and
- rice systems
During the recent ISFM conference in Rabat, Morocco, ASHC held a competition amongst the attending delegates to get feedback and additional tips for smallholder farmers growing these crops.
Duncan Sones explains: ‘ASHC asked the delegates to make practical suggestions about the sort of ISFM advice we should give to smallholders. We also asked for suggestions to improve the cropping guides. We had some really good suggestions that will help us to finalise the design of these important documents. I am delighted to say that Isaac Balume from IITA was the lucky winner of the $500 PICO projector. ASHC would like to thank everyone who took part in our consultation.’
Isaac Balume receives his prize from Professor Mustapha Missbah El Idrissi, conference host and the president of African Association of Biological Nitrogen Fixation
