Agriculture As a result of declining soil fertility, poor seeds/breeds, improper management techniques, a decrease in farm household sizes, and an increase in population and land pressure, many rural poor farmers are facing low crop and livestock yields. To cope with this situation, they are resorting to farming methods that require costly inputs and improve yields at the expense of the environment and the sustainability of their land and income. These practices include slash and burn, the improper use of synthetic fertilizers/pesticides, and the extension of farmlands by felling forests. Long-term, these techniques are not sustainable, and will contribute to food insecurity while exacerbating climate change.To address these challenges, SHUMAS works with farmers and community-based farming groups to promote production methods that are both environmentally- friendly and economically viable, in order to combat rural poverty and food insecurity while protecting the environment and improving farmers' self- sufficiency.
