Rift Valley may no longer be the country's bread basket in the next 37 years. A report dubbed "climate change to shift Kenya's bread baskets" warns of a possible geographic shift in maize production in the country that would see the production of maize reduce drastically till it's no longer practical to farm the crop. It also warns that agricultural production at the coast could drop by 25%. The report urges communities to embrace new age agricultural methods and technology as well as embracing the farming of crops other than maize.

Climate-Hit Zimbabwe Farmers Opt for Traditional Crop Varieties

Climate-Hit Zimbabwe Farmers Opt for Traditional Crop Varieties | Climate Smart Agriculture | Scoop.it

In a changing climate where rainfall has become even more unpredictable than before, Moyo plants every inch of her small plot with traditional seed varieties. The benefits, she says are big in terms of resilience to unpredictable conditions, crop diversity and food variety throughout the year.

 

Moyo, a farmer in Jambezi ward, 300 km north of Bulawayo, credits much of her success as a farmer to conservation agriculture techniques, such as planting seeds in holes that collect water and extend the moisture available to thirsty plants.

 

But she also grows traditional crops whose seed she can save and sell to other farmers. She focuses on "open pollinated varieties" - plant types that are pollinated by wind and insects, and whose seeds can be saved for planting the next year, unlike store-bought hybrid seeds.
