      Do the villagers regularly use manure to fertilize their crops or are the vegetables planted without any, as there is no mention of manure on the design section.
      Do they have farm animals they can regularly collect manure from to compost?

        Hi Ben,

        Good question! I just confirmed with the Cambodia team that the farmers in Pu Ngaol are using animal manure as fertiliser. The typical sources are from cow, pig and chicken.

          I’d be interested to know how effective these were. Whether they included organic scrap material into it as well. Do you believe this is an area that could be improved?
          Do we know if they have mixers? I know organic fertiliser tends to need oxygen + water otherwise it begins producing methane.
          Or if they spread it via hand or they have some sort of plough that mixes it amongst the soil.
