Unpredictable weather poses problems for farmers. Farming methods need to be adapted to climate change. Shamba Shape up visits a weather research center were they try to predict rainfall probability for farmers. Farmers are trained to make farming weather calenders. We also learn about planting trees, making a compost heap, zero grazing pens, water harvesting and push & pull methods.
Shamba Shape Up is the third “edu-tainment” production created by Mediae, and the first of its kind in Kenya and now crossing the borders. Aimed at East Africa’s rapidly growing rural audience, the make over style TV show aims to give both farmer and audience the tools they need to improve productivity and income on their farms.
