In the last 9 months, Adamawa ACReSAL under the visionary leadership of it’s State Project Coordinator Dr Ibrahim D. Chinda with the support of Adamawa State government, revamped the moribund Farming Skills Acquisition Centres across the state to train farmers on Regenerative Agriculture.

Over 20,000 farmers have so far been trained. Realising how difficult it is for subsistent farming households to get access to land, this 256 hectare farm has been allocated through an arrangement brokered by Adamawa ACReSAL and well meaning individuals in the state to over 500 farmer households to practice what they have learnt, free of charge, for 10 years!

It is hoped that withing the next 5 years, with close monitoring and adherence to the regenerative agriculture practices, these farmers would be able to reap enough organic produce and carbon credits to enable them own their land to continue this sustainable agricultural practice.

A closer look at the the plot shows work has began with the construction of micro watersheds known as halfmoons on the plots.

These structures are technically constructed to trap run-off water and keep the crops thriving during droughts which have become the norm because of climate change patterns, and also as a reservoir of organic matter and compost to nourish the plants without the use of chemical fertilizers.

It is only a matter of months before this huge expanse of degraded land is turned into lush green fertile and thriving landscape. We will keep you posted as activities unfold.
