CIMMYT & CSISA: Save more, grow more, earn more
From the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia in Bangladesh (CSISA-BD):
How do farmers grow more, while saving time, water and money?
Prices for irrigation, fertilizer, fuel and labor are rising. Fresh water supplies are decreasing, and many farmers find it increasingly difficult to plant their crop on time to assure good yields and return on their investments. This video shows how farmers in Bangladesh are innovating to overcome these problems by using small-scale and appropriate machinery, and crop management practices that reduce tillage to save time, soil moisture, and money.
This video was developed for International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia in Bangladesh (CSISA-BD) in partnership with the Regional Wheat Research Consortium of the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute. Funding for video development and field activities was supplied by the Feed the Future Initiative of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Cornell University's Food for Progress Project, funded by the Unites States Department of Agriculture.
