Comparing Average Yield : Resources ?
Location: Bamako, Mali
posted 1 year ago
Number of slices to send:
Optional 'thank-you' note:
I am starting a
farm in Mali 40 km away from the capital
The raining season starts in June and this year I intend to do some swales, plant a living
, and do some alley intercropping with
nitrogen fixing trees
My first cash crop will be Moringa Oleifeira leaves.
However I'd like to diversify my revenues at some point and I have considered a few options that could possibly have a market in Bamako, such as :
- Cashew nuts
- Aloe Vera
- Arabic Gum
- Jasmine Flowers
- Citrus fruits
- Roucou (Bixa Orellana)
What I am trying to know is the average yield for those crops, so that I can compare those crops on a production aspect and make a better decision.
Is there any ressources (websites,
) that gives an overall idea of the yield one can expect for a crop ?
Thank you very much.
Cheers from Western Africa
