Farming has never been easier, lack of information has been one of the challenges that hinders agricultural development but this is changing now. It used to be very difficult to access information on the dos and don’ts of farming making it difficult and less rewarding. To access information, farmers depended on the government extension officers who were then rare to come by but thanks to the advent of technology, agricultural information can be easily accessed without necessarily waiting for information officers. Information is now easily available through different media and in different formats.
The Organic Farmer Magazine – one of FCP’s project that offers practical farming information monthly also runs a facebook page. This page provides a platform to farmers for sharing experiences with other others and consult each other on issues facing them. With this, TOF has made information sharing easier and thus easing farming. https://www.facebook.com/theorganicfarmer?ref=ts&fref=ts
