Based on 25 years of experience, expected yields from this method of farming are up to 10 times higher than traditional methods. For example, a local farmer in Uganda can expect a yield of 3-6 bags of maize on an acre of land using traditional methods. Using Farming God’s Way methods, expected yields will be between 30 and 60 bags of maize.
Karl has been farming this way for three seasons now. Below is a photo gallery of this seasons crop.
