RICCE Conservation Agriculture Farmers Exhibit Products at Mini Agricultural Fair in Nimba

first_imgFarmers practicing the newly introduced “conservation agriculture” around the ArcelorMittal concessional areas in Nimba County, recently exhibited their first farm produce at the mini agricultural fair in Zortapa, Nimba County.About seven groups from within Zor Community participated in the exhibition, which brought together scores of community members, including chiefs, elders, youth, students, and women and among other.Farm produce displayed at the fair were mainly vegetable products including beans, corn, cassava, pepper and ground pea (peanut).Speaking on behalf of the citizens of Zor community, Paramount Chief Joseph Y. Yormie stressed that short term training was not enough to give the citizens all the knowledge required to stand alone.He said there had been many training around the East Nimba Nature Reserve (ENNR) but neither of them yields any result that could sustain the citizens and stop them from fencing around the nature reserve.He said looking at the exhibition, he thinks, the conservation agriculture will be sustainable and beneficiary to the citizens of Zor and therefore called on authorities of ArcelorMittal and its implementer—RICCE—to extend the duration of the project and also include the remaining communities within the Zor Chiefdom.RICCE is implementing for ArcelorMittal to teach the farmers living around the ENNR to shift from the old farming method to new one.In January last year, RICCE introduces a new farming method called “Conservation Agriculture” in and around the communities surrounding the ENNR.In conservation agriculture, according to RICCE, the farmer doesn’t require burning the farm after brushing, but rather go ahead with their planting their crops and also the farmer has the opportunity to continue farming on the same spot over and over with less energy.The Forest Development Authority and citizens of Zor reached an agreement in 2008 to co-manage the Northern Nimba Nature Reserve after years of hurdle between FDA and communities over the surveying of the reserve.On the tour of some demonstration sites, the program manager Renee Gibson explained that individual farmers are getting involved and carrying on their project other than the group.She further explained that farmers are now being taught to build their own organic fertilizers so as to keep their crops fertilized.According to our Nimba Correspondent, vegetable crops seen at the demonstration sites of the newly introduced farming method looked fresher than that of the old farming method where burning of bush is done after brushing.“The money you take to fell will be used to pay your child’s school fees, so the conservation agriculture is good,” said one Peter, a farmer.However, Zor Community residents have called on ArcelorMittal’s authorities to include tree crop in the program and also extend the training duration so as get more insight on the new method.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bing for iPhone Gets Barcode Scanner and Basic Twitter and Facebook Client

first_imgTags:#Microsoft#news#search#web Not only did Bing arrive as a new search option in Apple’s iOS4 update yesterday, but Microsoft also just launched a new version of its native Bing for iPhone app. The app now features a RedLaser-like barcode scanner and an enhanced social search mode that highlights results from your social network on Twitter and Facebook. In addition, the app now also features a basic Twitter and Facebook client.Twitter Client and Social SearchThe Twitter/Facebook client is very basic and only allows you to respond to tweets, retweet and post new tweets. The app does not feature a URL shortener or any other advanced features. Chances are, you wouldn’t want to use the Bing app as your standard Twitter and Facebook client, but the features are good enough to allow you to interact with your friends when their Tweets and Facebook status updates appear in your social search results. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois Barcode Scanner: Fast, Easy – But With Limited ResultsThe most interesting feature addition to the Bing for iPhone app is the barcode and cover art scanner. With this, you can quickly scan a barcode an any product with the iPhone’s built-in camera and compare prices at different online retailers. In our short test, the app was able to read barcodes pretty easily – even on an iPhone 3G without autofocus. While RedLaser and ShopSavvy sometimes take a while before they recognize a barcode (especially if you don’t have a very steady hand), the Bing app quickly latched on to any barcode we threw at it. Sadly, though, the shopping results in the Bing app can’t compete with those in ShopSavvy, for example. While Bing only returned 3 results for this book, ShopSavvy returned over 50 results, including 15 from local brick and mortar stores. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Barca tries to leave Pique controversy behind with Copa

first_imgSlow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting AFP official booed out of forum A draw at Mestalla Stadium will be enough to put Barcelona in the final and keep it on track to win its fourth consecutive Copa title.It’s not even clear if Pique will play because of an injury sustained after his goal celebration in the 1-1 draw against Espanyol. The veteran defender couldn’t avoid a hard tackle by Espanyol forward Gerard Moreno, who was upset with Pique’s celebration. Pique received a knock to his right knee and was listed as doubtful to make the trip to Valencia.Pique had made comments criticizing Espanyol before Sunday’s league match, and the crowd showed their disapproval by jeering him nearly every time he touched the ball at RCDE Stadium. Pique said some of the fans insulted his family throughout the match.It is not the first time the outspoken Pique has been surrounded by controversy. He is often jeered by fans when Barcelona plays away games because of his pro-Catalonia stance. Last year, after encouraging Catalans to vote in a disputed independence referendum, he was loudly booed by fans in Madrid after joining the Spanish national team at a training camp.Barcelona has faced a hostile environment at Mestalla in the past. In a league match last season, Valencia fans threw objects at Barcelona’s players while they celebrated a goal near the stands.ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding LATEST STORIES Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Knicks hopes on hold after Kristaps Porzingis tears ACL View comments “It’s going to be an intense match,” Valencia coach Marcelino Garcia Toral said. “We have to play it with our hearts and with our heads. We have to play it with intelligence. If we don’t defend well we will not advance. We have to be humble to know that we are not going to dominate Barcelona for the whole 90 minutes.”Valencia and Barcelona met in the Copa semifinals two years ago, with the Catalan club winning 7-0 at Camp Nou Stadium in the first leg. It then held on to a 1-1 draw at Mestalla with its second-stringers.Since that 7-0 demoralizing defeat, Valencia has lost only three of its six matches against Barcelona, winning 2-1 at Camp Nou in a league game in 2016 and drawing 1-1 at Mestalla earlier this season.Third in the league, 18 points behind leader Barcelona, Valencia is trying to make it to the Copa final for the first time since 2007-08, when it won its seventh title after eliminating Barcelona in the semifinals.
