Our farm is 2,800 لديه (7,000 فدان) that is arable, and we lease 2,800 لديه. Our soils are mostly loamy that are drought and subsoil acidity prone. We grow cool season crops, including wheat, canola and have also grown barley, نباتات الترمس وفول الصويا.

Im looking forward to networking with leaders in African agriculture to see how my no-till expertise and interests in new plant breeding tools (pro-bono) can assist in solving genuine pest and disease threats in plants across Africa.
