UFCL successfully conducted a field day for local farmers in Chisamba on Tuesday 20 April. Growers were able to observe differences in crop performance among various fertilization practices. Particularly, the effect of additional potassium application in form of potassium chloride was demonstrated on maize and tomatoes. Just shortly prior the field part, attendees listened a presentation about balanced crop fertilization approach. Mr Simunji Simunji, Chief Agronomist, comments: “We were happy to host this event and to share a piece of science with farmers as well as students. Participants have got first a general idea, theoretical background, and thereafter were able to see and understand, what processes are taking place in the field”. His colleague, Mr Maksim Poltoradnev, adds up on that, saying, that “establishing demonstration plots is very important for farmers as they work on the ground and used to trust only what they can see and touch with their own hands”. We are certainly distressed that AgriTech Expo Zambia was postponed until next year. Nevertheless, we do not lower our hands and encourage everyone to keep going and support each other.
