The Raised Bed ..
Raised-bed farming is the type of cultivation by which the soil is formed in 3-4 foot wide (1.0–1.6m) beds.
It can be of any length.
At our training facility, our beds are 1.6m wide by 25 m lenght
Making 80 of our sized beds automatically give an acre of land while 200 of the beds make an hectare of land
*. The soil is raised above the surrounding soil
and enriched with manure or compost
* The vegetable plants are spaced much closer together than in conventional farm which allows more plant on the raised beds
* The spacing when the vegetables are fully grown make their leaves just barely touch each other, creating a cover to suppress weed grow
and conserve moisture
* Because the Farmer can not walk on the raised beds, the soil is not compacted and the roots have an easier time growing
* The close plant spacing and the use of manure intensively result in higher yields with raised beds in comparison to conventional row farming
