On #worldwaterday Hortau tips its cap to all of our growers utilizing precision irrigation practices to produce more food for our growing population, while cutting back on valuable inputs such as water and energy. They know the importance of our water reserves, and are doing their part to truly grow more with less.
Hortau growers typically cut back water use by more than 25-30% depending on irrigation and crop type, giving their crop exactly the amount of water it needs to remain at optimal production levels.
Our agricultural team has been planting new sugar cane at Hope Farm in St. Andrews today. As the site is located very close to a river, the soil here is an alluvial/clay mixture. #Grenada#farming#rum#agriculture
This year’s theme for #worldwaterday is #natureforwater . This encourages us to think about the different ways that water affects us and our natural environment. This is about more than just access to clean water, but also protecting ourselves from the changing water levels that we are increasingly seeing from extreme weather. The community of Ngolahun is working hard to build a reinforced bridge that will be strong enough to withstand the heavy rains that Sierra Leone experiences. This will enable farmers to have year-round access to their farms, and also enable children to access school, even during the heaviest rains.
