Better methods of cultivation including mulching and terracing could minimize soil and fertility loss, as well as effects of floods, the Kasese Municipal Environment officer, Mrs. Evelyn Kiryaghe Mugume has said.
Speaking to Kasese Guide radio at her office yesterday, Ms Evelyn was quick to warn that the local residents on hilly areas would lose soil and her fertility should they fail to apply better farming methods.
She also blamed the current flood threats to community members who not only cut trees but apply poor farming methods that make it easy to allow water go its way. Ms. Evelyn speaking1…….
Ms Evelyn later asked the community members to avoid thick bushes which she said are fertile breading places for parasites and pests that are hazardous to life and property. Ms. Evelyn speaking2…….
Earlier this week, government supplied farm tools, some of which are to assist the beneficiaries nearing Nyamwamba river to work against stagnant water and floods. END
