    Keeping crops safe and communities prosperous

    Putting the Fun in Fungicide

    One of the hardest challenges for farmers to tackle is preventing pests and fungi from growing in their fields. Although tiny in size, these critters can have a huge impact on the security of a person’s food and livelihood.

    Lucky for us, a combination of methods can be used to prevent the spread of pests and fungi. And while the farmers will often use creative methods to deal with these issues, sometimes fungicides and pesticides are necessary to save their crops.

    Therefore, and in order to complement their new seeds and fertilizers, we provided all four of the greenhouses with pesticides and fungicides to use when other methods aren’t quite cutting it.

    These small solutions will make a big difference. Last year, the greenhouse in Juru estimates that they lost approximately 6,000 USD worth of crop from drought, insects and animals.

    Carol assists with ARC programming in Nakivale and Oruchinga and could really imagine the difference this would make. “Last year, the groups weren’t able to meet their full potential, but this year, they have the supplies to achieve more.”
