Warm greetings to all!

We hope that the past week has been a good one for our readers across Africa and around the world! This week, we extend a special welcome to our newest African subscribers: Renatus Raphael from the RCADC kibengwe telecenter in Tanzania, George Ambwene from the KBC Community Initiative Services in Tanzania, Lazarus Musyoki from Radio Mang’elete in Kenya, Soumaré Demba from la voix du Guidimakha/Association Foyer du Guidimakha in Mauritania, Paul Ananou from Radio Mono FM Comè in Bénin.

Most farmers are interested in affordably boosting their crop yields. This week, we have two stories about farmers who have done just that. Lilianne Nyatcha, our correspondent from Cameroon, tells us about farmers in the town of Nkongsamba who found that manure is a great alterative to expensive chemical fertilizers. And from Uganda, we have the story of a women’s group whose quest for better seeds led them to establish a 450-member seed production cooperative.

We thank all those who have sent us prepared stories over the past few weeks. If you have not heard from us yet, we will contact you soon to discuss how your contribution can fit into a future issue of FRW! And remember, the FRW website (http://weekly.farmradio.org/) is a great place to post a comment sharing your experience with an issue!

Happy reading!
