Mini local experiment on agroforestry


A mini experiment on agroforestry was conducted in a Fanling farm where Moringa, Jute leaves and Pigeon peas were used as mixed cropping on a small sloping paddock with very poor soil.  Visitors to the farm witnessed the management of weeds using the principle of plant transition.  Continuous harvesting of the three economic crops began from April to September of 2016 with almost no input except shredded dry leaves proving that low cost chemical free farming is feasible with proper use of scientific knowledge about soil biology and plant growth.  Since then, dissemination of knowledge and principles underlying regenerative farming to voluntary workers of the farm has become a continuous and routine practice.
