Descriptif
Tearfund Canada is supporting Wolayta Kale Heywet Church – Terepeza Development Association with a five-year conservation agriculture project in Humbo and Damot Woydie Woredas of the Wolaita Zone, totaling $1.8 million.

Many small-scale farmers in this area struggle to grow enough food to provide for their families. Poor farming methods, erratic weather, erosion, drought and open grazing of livestock are some of the factors that limit agricultural production.

This project is introducing and promoting conservation agriculture techniques to 8,500 farm families (about 42,500 people). Conservation agriculture is a farming approach that uses minimal soil disturbance, crop rotations, cover crops and mulching to improve soil health and fertility and increase production. The training includes community meetings, farmer field days and farmer field schools, and other educational activities. Savings and loans groups are also being introduced.

This project is part of the Global Affairs Canada-funded conservation agriculture grant.
