Spacing

The community organisation explains how plants should be spaced.The community to be assisted to increase production."Not all crop varieties grow to the same size.some remain small,and can be planted closer together.others are big and spread out.They need more space on the ground.The spacing between plants may be spaced closer together to make the best use of precious water The total of 10 orphaned youth have been starting with extreme poverty."oh yes-having the correct spacing is one part of making the best possible use of land.Regardless of how much space plants need.it is a good idea to plan the spacing carefully,and to grow plants in rows.This makes it possible to get in between them and manage them more easily for example,top trees fertilizing,weeding,thining and watering.Information about proper spacing of crops can be obtained from your local agriculture extension worker.
