Farming Challenges

According to early reports from Jesse’s recent demonstration plot, bugs destroyed some of the bean crops, and some of the corn did not germinate properly. Jesse thinks he may have purchased some bad corn seeds. The quality of seeds is a constant problem faced by farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa and is addressed in David’s training with the practice of saving seeds from every harvest. By saving back some of their seeds and storing them properly, farmers always know the quality and freshness of their seeds.
