Climate change is creating increased water stress, resulting in droughts that affect soil fertility and erosion of lands. Small-scale farmers need to know how to adapt, so we provide farm radio broadcasters with resources to share with their listeners.

Growing and eating nutritious crops can be as simple as changing the variety — but the results can be huge. Farmer Mugisa Damaseni learned about a highly-nutritious variety of maize on a radio program.

Hear him explain the difference he has seen in his children and himself after eating quality protein maize. http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2015/04/13/audio-postcard-quality-protein-maize-its-protein-with-a-punch/
