Season 2021A launching within HoReCo assigned irrigation schemes.
In this season 2021A, the farmers finished preparing their land in order to avoid the season delay. And this was done according to the rain availability published by Meteo Rwanda that rain will disappear early.
The main crops grown for this season are Maize and Rice. In some assigned schemes the farmers end sowing and the others are still in that process. For the farmers who are not yet started sowing they are ending land preparation and now they are collecting all the inputs needed including fertilizers and seeds. Generally the land preparation reached the end and the farmers are preparing for sowing.
In the assigned schemes the farmers got inputs reserved for demo plots and all of them were given by HoReCo.
The farmers also got inputs supported by YALA and Districts in terms of maximizing their yield and this become more profitable to them.
