Securing the future of farming in Zambia by
implementing climate adapted farming methods.
Mechanised conservation agriculture on-farm
experiment yields promising results.

Join us at AgriTech Expo Zambia, at the GART premises near
Chisamba to discuss learnings of field trials and see first-hand the most recent
developments in the farming sector.


Zambia has seen impacts of climate change across the entire country in recent years. The rain comes
late in the season and end early; often resulting in heavy runoff and floods. The climate adapted
farming methods project an initiative of the Zambian-German Agricultural Knowledge and Training
Centre (AKTC) which started in 2019, is aimed at minimizing climate related impacts and secure
income among small-scale and emergent farmers through the practice of mechanized conservation
agriculture.


Achieving good plant stands is a key factor for high yields; plant populations in no-till plots developed
better than in conventional tillage plots (Picture 1). Likely, a result of higher soil moisture contents
and reduced evaporation – no-till reducing rainwater runoff and improving the water infiltration.

Less time and fuel was required for planting in no-till plots reducing production cost while weed
control and insect control recorded insignificant time, labour and fuel differences.
AgriTech Expo Zambia – the most important agricultural trade fair in Zambia presented by ZNFU and
organized by DLG Agriculture a local subsidiary of the German Agricultural Society (DLG), at GART will
be an ideal platform to exchange more information with the AKTC project leaders and mechanised
conservation agriculture project partners like Bayer, Seed Co, Omnia fertilizers, Precision Farming.
