“Adapting the ploughing calendar in Mandou, Guinea” by Bangaly Camara, May 2021

Bangaly Camara, a villager from Mandou, says in this video that he starts ploughing at the beginning of May because he was surprised by the lack of rain last year. Everything that was cultivated in April will be harvested in water, so he is starting to plough now so that he can harvest it in 3 to 4 months.

The farmers spent too much last year on their fields and despite this, the harvest was poor due to lack of rain.

He ploughs to save time and money.

The video shows how the oxen make the furrow with the plough..
