Do not fetch fertilizer and dump under the maize plants, bury it 5cm-10cm away from plants to avoid evaporating and wash away by rain. We expect rain volume to sharply drop to about 75mm for the entire October. Farmers with younger crops that still require a lot of water should mulch their farms to conserve moisture. We expect heavy rains in the coming days. You can create drainage channels in your maize fields which are in low lands to avoid floods. Do not use herbicides to control weeds in flooded Rice fields. Wait for water to drain or use hand pulling. Call Esoko on 1900 for more info. Climate tips…
