Farm Activities After Planting.

The activities carried out after planting are;

  1. Watering: the growing pants are watered regularly especially in the early stage. This can be done with a watering can or irrigation system.
  2. Harvesting: The farmer must harvest his crops once they have yielded matured fruits. This is done with baskets, knives, sickle, cutlass etc.
  3. Storing: Farmers must store their crops properly after harvesting so that pests and diseases will not infect them thereby reducing their quality. Crops can be stored in bags, baskets, barns or kept in stores or silos.
