Summary

DAG plans to train poor rural farmers on agroforestry and planting of fast growing multipurpose trees. This will help them for soil fertility, increased crop yields, revenue and help the environment

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The problem is rural poor farmers in Maumu that number about four hundred are experiencing soil infertility problems in recent years and they do not have money to buy chemical fertilizers. They cannot also afford money to acquire more farm lands to increase crop yields. They also manage to keep some livestock but have problems to acquire their feed. Timber around homes have been cut down over the years so farmers have fuel problems.

How will this project solve this problem?

Agroforestry technology and trees will fertilize the soil permanently, provide animal feed, provide fuel wood and fuel efficient stoves, provide fire and wind breaks.Non timber forest products will also add to revenues.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will educate 400 rural poor farmers on agroforestry technologies. This will increase farmers yield and revenues, promote education, improve health, water sources would be conserved and global climate would be improved.
