AICC in collaboration with Livunzu EPA conducted a field day on 2nd March 2016 in Nkhate. A field day is one of group methods used in extension teaching. The importance of field days lies in the fact that farmers are able to learn through seeing the fruits of a recommended farming technology.
The field day’s main aim was to show case Systems of Rice Intensification (SRI) technology. SRI is a method of growing rice which combines different sets of cultural practices for managing the soil, the plant, nutrients and water to produce high grain yields.
