Welcome to FarmAfripedia
Africa has a rich base of indigenous agricultural knowledge. Since time immemorial, our ancestors and all before us have used this knowledge to till the land and rear their flock. Interesting is they did not face challenges like “climate change”, “soil degradation”, “health challenges resulting from the chemicals in the food they ate”, and alot more. Today, this is common and is getting worse. On the other hand, we are loosing this library of vital knowledge with each new generation.
This platform therefore brings together different stakeholders in the agricultural sector from the African continent to not only collect this knowledge but also learn and share from each other; and especially on issues pertaining to best farming practices using indigenous content.
