Now that the rain has arrived in Sigatoka, this means it is the perfect opportunity for the weeds to continue to grow on our plot. Instead of rows of brown beds, we are seeing nothing but green. Whilst this may be aesthetically pleasing, this is not good news for the planting of our seedlings into the plot.  Over the first week, the Field Development team was able to consolidate our blueprint, work out exactly where the experiments will be taking place on the beds, plant seeds in our...

Unfortunately, it is that time of the month where we have to wrap everything up and pass on our project to the next team. FarmEd Field Development has had a huge month, filled with sweat, blisters, digging and good vibes. The team has worked tirelessly to ensure that we have continued and developed upon the work that was done by the teams who have come before us and to hopefully lay a solid foundation for those that will come after us.   Our goal for the month was to set up our plot in...

The Field Development team here in Fiji had a big first day of the final week, whereby we completed our monthly goal and completed the initial set up of our plot in Sigatoka.     We have 28 beds (6m x 1.5m) and plans for a living fence on all sides to be included on the plot. When we returned to the plot today to do some cleaning, weeding and more digging, we found that the growth rate of the weeds was much more significant than we first thought. After spending a solid 4.5 hours on the...

  Today the Field Development team had a chance to reflect on their busy first week and the many successes and setbacks that it brought. After learning the ropes at our FarmEd/Agriculture induction we were able to plan our course of action at both Ranadi Plantation and our new demo plot in Sigatoka Village.   After a beautiful trip down to Ranadi we spent some time analysing the progress of the plot from the previous month. We collected data on how the crops were germinating,...

As the project month for the December Field Development team in Fiji comes to a close it is now time for the January team to step up and try to match the amazing level of work that was achieved.   Despite setbacks with flooding, drainage and broken down tractors they have persevered and managed to achieve some incredible things in such a short span of time and lay down some important foundations for the January team to follow.     After snapping up a beautiful piece of land close to...
