Orant Farm Plot and Field Day Demonstration

Every year in March, Orant invites hundreds of farmers and the local chiefs to our campus to review the different seeds and fertilizers that are available. We make important announcements regarding health and safety (COVID-19 in 2020) and perform skits that emphasize the importance of being a proactive farmer.

Local Orant-sponsored “lead farmers” guide other farmers throughout the year with advice and assistance.
