SoilCares in Kenyan media
News out of Africa
Seeds of Gold – the agriculture business section of the Kenyan newspaper Daily Nation, recently published an article on the importance of soil testing. SoilCares Senior Soil Scientist, Ruth Mukhongo, was interviewed for the publication and shared her expertise on the topic:
Most farmers are not aware of their soil fertility status despite the fact that the soils are sick. Crops, like all living things, require nutrients and in the right proportion to be healthy.
The article emphasizes the importance of understanding soil’s nutritional needs but also focuses on problems such as farmers’ lack of knowledge to interpret soil testing results. At SoilCares we aim at providing agricultural knowledge at the hands of farmers by giving them access to the knowledge of our experts. Our innovative soil Scanner delivers fast, affordable, on-the-spot soil testing.
