Kongbora assessment includes soil testing

March 31, 2014

Domingo is a lab technician at Njala University, and he is helping us in our ongoing assessment of the people and land in the Kongbora chiefdom in Sierra Leone. He and his team dug test pits for taking soil samples. Here he is marking the depth of the pit with the blue and white tape (10cm per section white/blue) and a tag at top noting the soil sample number. This testing will help identify other crops that would thrive in the area and assist in developing fertilizer recommendations.
