Many farmers struggle with difficult soil or planting conditions, losing valuable seedlings before germination. Fintrac is teaching farmers to use seed trays, an easy and affordable way to ensure the right amounts of soil and water are used when germinating plants.
Seed trays are the best way to produce strong and healthy seedlings as their mobility allows farmers to move them away from potential threats like excessive sun and rain. Seed trays protect roots during transplant, increasing survival rate significantly.
With the introduction of this basic technology, farmers are able to improve quality, reduce seedling death rates, lower the quantity of seed required, and lessen the time from planting to harvest. All of which translates directly into increased yields and incomes for farmers.
