Sowing seeds in Ghana through SALT Agri-Plus

Sowing seeds

In Ghana, West Africa, SALT Agri-Plus staff members are teaching Ghanaians improved ways of sowing seeds and farming by using natural materials to cultivate their land and reduce erosion. Each agricultural lesson is based on Scripture. Biblical principles help reveal practical truths that clients can apply in everyday life.

Solomon, a SALT Agri-Plus client in Ghana, tells what he has learned through the program. “Before our soil management training lesson on compost, I didn’t know we could make our own fertilizers for our farms. The only thing I knew was to buy expensive chemical inputs. Now we’ve learned to use many resources around us to make good fertilizers for our farms.” He continues, “I never knew how important insects are for our crops’ pollination. Through our training, I learned much about how plants are pollinated.”
