Farming First Case Studies and Videos Feature in New Farmers Guardian World News Site

Farming First are pleased to announce that the coalition has contributed to the World News section of the Farmers Guardian website, as part of an ongoing relationship with the UK-based Farmers Guardian.

The recently launched World News page features news stories, case studies, and videos from farmers across the planet

Farming First has provided two case studies for the launch of the new sub-section:

Farmer-to-farmer training in Zambia

Limpopo Basin

Limpopo Basin

  • CropLife Zambia has been training farmers in the responsible use of pesticides, who then become Spray Service Providers, administering pesticides on the farms in their villages.

Securing water supply in the Limpopo Basin

  • FANRPAN is the lead on a CGIAR programme researching water use and food security in the Limpopo Basin in South-eastern Africa.

Two Farming First videos are also on the Farmers Guardian site; an interview with Dr. Wynand van der Walt on plant biotechnology in Africa, and Tendayi Kureya from Development Data explains the Household Vulnerability Index and how this new metric is helping development practitioners.

Farmers Guardian is one of the largest sites for farming news in the UK.  The World News page is a new section of the website, to share the experiences of farmers throughout the world.
