At The Howard G. Buffett Foundation Centre for No-Till Agriculture (HGBF | CNTA), WE ARE GROWING lives through the positive impact of conservation agricultural (CA) practices.
Over the past 10 years, the Howard G. Buffett Foundation (HGBF) has partnered with Dr. Kofi Boa in a mission to expand the adoption of conservation agriculture practices within the farmer population of Amanchia, Ghana. HGBF equipped the Centre with vehicles to transport farmers and Agriculture Ministry staff to the Centre for trainings, an irrigation system, farmer dormitories and a permanent education center. Through ongoing support from HGBF, the HGBF | CNTA has successfully expanded its farmer base and demonstrated measurable impacts of CA adoption.
The positive impacts of CA include: water conservation, increased yields, weed & pest management, sustaining arable land, reduction of labor, innovation & entrepreneurship, access to education and food & nutrition security.
