Securing your investment is another critical component of farming practice. Farmers are encouraged secure their enterprises so as to avoid losses through theft, vandalism, animal destructions, disease and other disasters. In such regard, farmers are encouraged to put up fences and barriers that will prevent intruders from coming into their farms and destroying their hard work. Here, farmers often put up fences such as barbed wire, chain links, electric fences and stone walls depending on the severity of the security problem. Further to this, employing security guards and other modern technologies such as CCTV surveillance may further deter potential criminals from damaging your work.
Planning one’s farm is also quite important in maximizing the benefits one can accrue from their farm. Farm layout is the physical arrangement of planting on your piece of land. This aspect of planning is dependent on various factors such as the size of your land, availability of water, the type of climate and soils in your area and so on. This involves a lot of structuring such that you balance your crops in accordance with their requirements and consumption patterns in order to maximize the land use as well as the profits one can reap of their investments. The key advantage in this regard is the ability to maximize the potential of your investment and as well improve on efficiencies in subsequent seasons.
The term surveying in farming, can carry multiple meanings; however, they all connote some form of planning and measurement. Farm surveys on the one hand can be activities done to locate and/or determine existing boundaries on a plot of land. On the other, surveying can be activities done to determine planning for your crops. In this case, an examination of soils, infrastructure (farm houses and stores) and the surroundings are undertaken to establish a seasonal plan. This component of planning is also important because it looks at your farm from a broader perspective where you see the environment around and plan for your farming process. Some of the outcomes here then will be establishing accessibility to water, electricity, farm inputs and labor. You may also seek to find out your farm logistics (transport to and from the farm) and the timing of your farming season. Consequently Food Africa Enterprises Ltd. engages you and your farm in effective surveying in order to make sure we plan to succeed and make your enterprise worth your while.
