ANNOUNCEMENTS
COVID-19 community support
Help us in raising funds for our current campaign to assist six young changemakers, who are visiting rural communities to share agricultural information in local languages. This is all the more important as recently many young people have left their studies or jobs in the city to go back to their rural homes. Find out more about these young entrepreneurs and help them to bring personal protective equipment (PPE) to rural populations to avoid the spread of Coronovirus. Donate Now!
We want to know what you think
Please take a few minutes to complete our survey. Access Agriculture hosts over 220 learning videos in 85 languages on its video platform (www.accessagriculture.org). All the videos are free to watch or download. Taking the survey will help us to understand how people are using our content, and if we are reaching women and youth.

The first 1000 people who complete this survey will be entered into a draw. One winner will receive a free smart projector.

Grass strips against soil erosion
Contour hedgerows slow the speed of water coming down the slope and allow the water to infiltrate. They also allow the washed away soil and nutrients to settle out above the hedgerows. You can plant many different grasses, depending on what you need and what is locally available.

Turning honey into money
Turning honey into money
Traditionally, honey was sold in the comb, but nowadays most consumers prefer honey that is extracted from the comb. This processed honey is clean and ready to use, and can be stored over a longer period of time. To ensure that honey keeps its quality, you have to respect three basic rules: harvest only honey that is mature; maintain high hygienic standards during harvesting and processing; and ensure that all equipment and packaging containers are clean and dry.
