“For Late Planting, The Maize, We Used A Planting Distance Of 75 By 50 Cm Between Rows And Plants Respectively” Young Sierra Leonean Agricultural Extension Officer Share Epic Photos After Farm Visit

A young Sierra Leonean agricultural extension agent, Researcher, farm owner and Quality control coordinator at the National Produce Monitoring Board (PMB) Sierra Leone,
Slay Farmer has taken on social media sharing epic photos of her visit to the farm, in her social media post, she taught her farmers about yield value in crops planting spacing.

“Saturdays are for Farm!!

Over the past two weeks I got so hooked up running the office but then I could never forget to plant even though I am late.
So this very Saturday I get to Visit Slay Farms at gbovehun, Six Mile crossing point, western area rural just to check on my babies (vegetables) and get to discuss with my beautiful farmers around as they teach me the traditional methods and I, in turn, the scientific and research-proven methods. (YES, we can integrate traditional and scientific methods)

Today, I thought them about the yield value in crops planting spacing as you plant on, I told them, you can’t let the plants compete for nutrients because if you do close planting thinking you want to get more crops in the field and that they will get you more harvest, the plants will compete for the soil nutrient and then share it so actually they wouldn’t yield as they should.

So for Late planting, the maize, we used a planting distance of 75 by 50 cm between rows and plants respectively and that’s why it’s two per hole (because it’s late planting)(actual is 75×25 and one per hole)). The Planting distance has a lot to do with better yield.
For the vegetables like pepper, tomato, cucumber etc is 30 cm between plants. (LP)

To another Saturday.

Sallu Kamuskay

Sallu Kamuskay is a Sierra Leonean activist, storyteller, and blogger. He was born in Sierra Leone but later relocated to Guinea as a refugee because of the war in his country. Sallu Kamuskay uses his phone to engage on social media, under the name ‘’Salone Messenger’. He Co-Founded the Salone Messenger platform after his experience of the war, Ebola, and injustices. According to him, silence was the root cause of war, and of many social injustices, we continue to face as a nation. In 2013, during the Ebola crisis, Sallu Kamuskay took the risk and volunteered to fight Ebola. He spent some months in both safe and unsafe places; helping the victims and telling their sad stories. The election in 2018, left a divided country with communities fighting on tribal lines. This inspired Sallu Kamuskay to serve as the coordinator of the United Sierra Leone peace concert, which was organized in 4 major parts of the country, targeting violent communities and troubled youth. Sallu Kamuskay led a group of entertainers, activists, and organizations across the country on a peace tour, a program supported by the European Union, United Sierra Leone, Africa Union, ECOWAS, and the Messeh Leone Trust. Sallu Kamuakay has also served as a staff writer for the Hidden Voices Magazine.
Over the years, Sallu Kamuskay has been using his Techno phone to be able to tell stories, the phone he used to tell the story of Gbessay during Ebola who was admitted at one of the Ebola treatment centers after rumors that she had Ebola when the actual sickness was ulcer, she was almost abandoned at the treatment canter with no medication provided to her. She could have died. Sallu told the story via social media and was able to secure funding from the United Sierra Leone to buy her medication and advocated for her. She was later discharged and taken home, He did the same to a patient that died and was abandoned in the street, Sallu Kamuskay used his phone and shared the message across, the corps was later taken and buried. It could have been more disaster without his voice. The story of late America Stress 3-year-old daughter. The hero’s daughter was abandon after his father's death. He shared her sad story and was able to get a sister who has taken the child as her own and is currently providing her with educational support. The article of America Stress can be read on the link below http://ayvnewspaper.com/index.php/k2-categories/item/7350-america-stress-a-hero-to-recognize.
Sallu Kamuskay feels the stories of Gbessay, America stress and that of many others need to be told. The media house we have cannot better tell these stories, they are better reporters than telling human interest stories. He created the Salone Messenger platform and brought together passionate storytellers to be able to tell these compelling stories.
