Introducing and training farmers to better farming methods forms a key part of the programme.

Increasing the gap between rows of sugarcane not only results in better photosynthesis and better yield, it uses less seed and allows the use of mini tractors.

The labour hours saved from using mini tractors can be diverted into other agricultural or entrepreneurial activities, increasing the opportunity for diversification and additional income.
