System of Krain Krain Cultivation in Sierra Leone


Conventional cultivation of krain krain — a popular green leafy
vegetable (Corchorus) — starts with the broadcasting of seeds randomly
on raised beds (mounds) or on flat land with high seed density (direct
seeding), with manure added from backyard compost or FYM. Harvesting
the crop is by uprooting the whole plant, so it is done just once. There is
a single hand weeding done or most times no weeding. The farmer
needs to buy seeds in the market at relatively high cost, and there is little
assurance of quality.
