Sack bag farming
A Nigerian woman has showed off huge yams she harvested from her sack bag farming.
According to the woman, she doesn’t need a farmland as she uses sack bag to farm.
She shared on social media a practical way farmers and agriculture enthusiasts can plant their crops right at the comfort of their compound in their houses using the sack bag farming method.
The woman who identified herself as Sikade Wemimo in videos shared on Twitter by @oba_jero said with this approach to farming, there really will be no need for huge farmlands to cultivate crops.
In the first video, Wemimo, a recipient of Best Female Farmer award in Ondo state in 2004, said she planted yams in sack bags and planted vegetables above the yams to serve as mulching (a form of manure to the yams) during the dry season.
The mulching, according to her, will not be necessary during the rainy season. She stated that she has so far planted 400 bags of yams and is still planting more.
She added that there are diverse crops that can be planted using this method namely vegetables, peppers, tomatoes and so forth.
In a second video, she showcased the bountiful yam harvest she recorded on the farm as well as some already developing crops.
