The first plot of corn from the demonstration site has been harvested. As a reminder, this was the crop the cows attacked early and had poor germination. The team is conducting a soil analysis and looking at yields as well as other factors. The other two plots are approaching maturity, and David has been giving advice on how long to leave this corn in the field to dry properly in order to calculate proper yield forecasts for the different varieties planted.
The team is also beginning to design the next phase of planting. This will include testing using crop rotations, the use of mulch vs. a green cover crop, and other issues. Some of the moringa trees we planted have already reached one meter in height.
