Update on Research and Development

Prosper Nguluve

It was good catching up with Prosper Nguluve on the Research and Development plot. This is what he said:
  1. They finished harvesting the maize last week.
  2. They are in the process of hand shelling the maize.
  3. There are four 6m x 6m legume crops: red sun hemp, yellow sun hemp, Pigeon P (nitrogen fixing plant) and velvet beans.
Non of these crops are being watered at the moment with the aim being to see if they are suitable to be grown in the region. Ebenezer falls under region 5 which means it is a poor rainfall area.

Future Plans
Prosper says they'd like to open another block for crop rotation but they are still deciding on the crops.
