Burkina Faso: A pyramid for soilless culture

Kevin DOAMBA is a graduate in animal production. He has developed a pyramid that combines crop production, poultry and fish farming.

Kevin’s observation was that in Burkina Faso, farmers are dependent on rainfall and with climate change, it does not rain like before. The pyramid system that he conceived enables the user to grow crops in a small space, and other requirements such as water and nutrients can be controlled.

“I was surrounded by a multidisciplinary team that supported me in the field of consulting or implementation of the prototype. There is a welder, a plumber, a plastic specialist. It’s through teamwork that we are able to put this device in place,” says Kevin.
