STS believes that good crop husbandry and farming practices are critical in improving the food security and in building community resilience in the face of growing environmental shocks.
In 2019, STS improved the knowledge and skills of farmers and targeted households on better crop management, soil fertility management, water conservation, and post- harvest handling. The project has increased the income of the beneficiaries directly due to the increased productivity of the unit area through the application of this knowledge and skil s coupled with the use of fertilizers and certified quality seeds supplied by STS.
