Halfway through, over 21,000 farmers practising conservation ag; results include better yields, less hunger
In the Kindo Koysha District of Ethiopia, staff at the Terepeza Development Association (TDA) are preaching the gospel—the gospel of conservation agriculture.
The TDA, which is supported by Canadian Foodgrains Bank through its member Tearfund Canada, is sending out evangelists—they call them “animators”—and gaining converts to the different way of farming in the dry and hilly area about 360 kilometres southwest of the capital of Addis Ababa.
