Banana Farming

Many farmers in Butere were planting banana's without the knowledge of how to grow the crop.They never knew if they can get an income from it.all they knew is that they planted for domestic use as food.so they did have enough knowledge on banana plant.But in the year 2007 there came an organisation in the area by he name wewasfo,which had interest on the welfare and well of the people in the area.This forced them to start by forming teams of technical trainers on the banana plants.this teams went in the area and educated farmers on how they can add value to the plant.by changing the way they plant and adopting the new ways.This made many farmers start earning from the practice this encouraged many villagers who started planting the crop as bussiness.
