Conservation Agriculture is defined as a farming system that promotes maintenance of a permanent soil cover, minimum soil disturbance (i.e. no tillage), and diversification of plant species.
It enhances biodiversity and natural biological processes above and below the ground surface, which contribute to increased water and nutrient use efficiency and to improved and sustained crop production.
Help Channel Burundi has been promoting CA for many years. This method aims to produce high yields and reduce production costs, while maintaining and improving soil fertility and conserving water.
