Demo Plot: Planting Popcorn

It’s easier to convince someone to do something if you’ve tried it yourself. Soon after arriving in site, we set up a small demonstration plot with an intercropping system of various green manures and alternative crops. Popcorn is a popular snack, but few Paraguayans have tried planting their own.

Here, Justin protects our popcorn seedlings from the ever-present chickens (who also like snacking!). For mulch we used mandioca (cassava) leaves and stems. October 16, 2007, Ruta’i, Caaguazú.
