YAP Proposal #32: “Integrated Farming of Tomato Trees and Banana” (Hubert Hirwa, Rwanda)

On my farm
On the farm, composting my tea

’Organic farming is holistic system everything we do is connected and carefully planned so we remain sustainable economically and environmentally.’’

My name is Hubert HIRWA. I am 26 years old. I was born in a family that lives from agricultural income in Rwanda and my mother is an Irish potatoes farmer.

I was inspired by her as she is very courageous. I have graduated in University of Rwanda, College of Agriculture, Animal Sciences and Veterinary Medicine. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree with Honors in Soil Sciences and Environment Management. I am District Environment Facilitator in Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA). I am student in Masters of Environment and Development Studies (MEDS) with specialization in Environmental Economics and Natural Resources Management in University of Lay Adventists of Kigali (UNILAK).

After participating in many trainings like Rwanda Entrepreneurial Mindset by Rwanda Development Board (RDB) in collaboration with Grow Movement; I started thinking out of box where I find many opportunities in my mind. With purpose of valorize what I have studied in Agriculture with innovational spirit; I discovered TWEZE liquid organic fertilizer where I use compost materials by diluting them and get black liquid which is used as fertilizer and it has the ability to suppress several foliar diseases as well as seed and root rot. It influences the increase of tomato trees (Solanum betaceum) seed quality and yield. I want to implement the project called ’’Integrated farming system of Tomato trees and banana with Tweze liquid organic fertilizer to maximize the profit.’ in our village of Kinoni/Ntaruka.

Tomato trees
Tomato trees

In Africa especially in Rwanda, the accessibility of compost to farmers and on agricultural markets is low compared to chemical fertilizers. The idea of our project refers to the fact that Tweze (liquid organic compost) is a form of compost which is easy to be accessible to the market and therefore can reduce the environmental destruction by agricultural inputs, as well as improving the soil fertility.

As my knowledge in organic agriculture increases the yield increases, the safer the product. The situation is good where I use to teach small kids nursery preparation and care activities in order to transform their mind with the spirit of initiating the Green Economy concepts using organic matter. I effort to be very conscious of my role as a good agricultural advisor by promoting the use of organic fertilizer.

Care, however, has been also given in creation of job for the people around the project where I use daily sixteen (16) women, one agronomist and other smallholder farmers. Many hardworking women and men come to me to buy tomato trees seedlings, to get advisor, to learn how to use organic fertilizer.

I am very motivated and excited in doing agriculture. My target is to promote sustainable agriculture by mitigating climate change effects. Previously, I taught and trained one of the young farmer who cultivates the tomato tree. The yield increases at 86% of the normal. One tree rises the yield of 14 to 20kg/tree.’’ Tweze is very productive and it improves my livelihood; now there is no malnutrition disease in my house’’ said Gahungu Theoneste.

I will use the direct sales to customers, inventory and transportation. The target customers for this product are smallholder farmers, cooperatives, agricultural enterprises, shop owners and Agrotechs. The product will be selled using negotiation methods, Mobile money, e-commerce using the under creation website.

Project budget line items

  • Buying compost and mulching materials: $1200
  • Improved varieties of banana (Fia 17 and 25): $800
  • Paying 16 man-powers in 6 months: $1000
  • Construction of tomato trees nurseries and buying materials (hoes, pumps and on) to use the farm: $500
  • Transportation costs from the farm: $1000

    courage Bro.

    1. Halo Dagobert! This fertilizer has two main use: To be use as foliar fertilizer and by putting it on the plant. You can use a pulveriser to spray on the plant. This can be used when at germination time in order to fasten the growth. I like this question.

  3. The project is a great innovation in agriculture. It can be a good step towards reducing use of mineral fertilisers to go more organic. It is also a climate smart agriculture innivation that could be upscaled.

    1. Hello Prof. You taught me how to manage the environment in Silviculture, Forestry and Agroforestry module. Now, i take decision of working in natural resources and good product which is friendly to environment. I want to reduce the use of those chemical because they cause soil pollution at large scale. This is one of the methods that i want to adopt in order to mitigate climate change effects.

  4. bro aka kantu ni keza cyane.

I remember when he founded Company for Environment Management, Forestry and Agroforestry Services (CEMAFOS Ltd). He had the vision of managing the natural resources in sustainable way. Good luck!

  188. Hirwa! We need more concise information. What kind of product are you manufacturing? How do you relate this to your production of tomato trees and banana plantation?

  189. Hirwa! Do you have a plant for making that fertilizer? it is very important to minimize the cost of chemical fertilizer moreover those chemical fertilizers have more impacts on the environment where they can destruct it by causing the soil pollution.

  196. I like this project because many people use this project that is action to change this world.

  197. Wonderful!!!!!!!!!! This story of farming with Tweze organic liquid fertilizer is a solution not only for increasing organic products but also a remedy to the soil fertility and pest management. Brother go ahead!

  198. I didn’t ever hear such a kind of entrepreneurial and innovative activity in agriculture. Even this is one of young professional who is passionate to undertake his thoughts to further extent through research for agricultural development.

    Much support to this guy!

  199. Agriculture is the main activity that most societies in the world depend on. Finding a substitute to chemical fertilizers is the first way to maximize the production of healthy products and also plays an important role in soil conservation by adding organic matter in the soil.

    So, tweze liquid is likely to change the world of agriculture.
    Our brother is bringing change.

  200. This tweze liquid is organic. Hirwa you are on the top of your choice to create your own job.
    This is about to make your future a bit more creative. The project is exciting!!!!

    Anyway, how is it working now?
    Did you try to make a follow up over time to make sure the liquid is chasing or killing pests from plantation?
    Contact me for further ideas on this project to move it a step forward.

  201. With this project, in my prospect , our agricultural ideas will gain more by learning from the TWEZE liquid as the research of HIRWA is the evidence of the performance of the liquid to do much more in agricultural production and more environmental friendly practice.

  202. undoubtedly, tweze is a new idea for me. The way I found the liquid is attractive to the growing concern of organically produced products, soil properties and environmental management.
    Furthermore, It may be a new business even as compost can be a business as well !

    Hirwa don’t let your spirit dies.

    Didn’t you try to mix tweze liquid with chemical fertilizer to assess the effect of both once combined?

  203. Keep on!
    Sustainably, the project is looking successful on both agriculture and efficiency in resource utilization.

    I would like you link this project to business venture to find new ways for making money.

  204. Compost is one of the organic materials that enhance the biodiversity in soil. It can also replenish the soil fertility by increasing the organic matter. Ayez bravour et du courage!

  205. This is a very impressive, life changing project; I can’t wait to see how many lives it would change when it becomes a reality. Keep up the good work!

  206. Alo Hirwa! This is a very helpful and interesting project. It’ s impact is not visible right now but you will see in the future. It will change many things in our rural community. Keep on and go ahead.

  207. This is a great idea of our time as young agriculture professionals. Me I am agronomist, i would be willing once in a while to work as a freelancer in this project for two months. I like it!

  208. Good HIRWA! This project will be an interesting programme to work with youth for sustainable agriculture which tends to reduce the malnutrition in our society.

  209. Hirwa! Good initiative to the accurate objective to our agriculture and farmers especially in East African Community (Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi, and South Soudan).

  210. Yes classmate! this is the only way to help youth in agriculture in our KINONI village. This is a answer to call youth back all unemployed youth to invest in agriculture. Upturn all your efforts to make it.

  211. Hey Hubert. i am gladly presented to support this initiative. Can you train other farmers not only those women you are using but also create a small cooperative? If it seems difficult to you you can consult Rwanda Cooperative Agency to assist you!

  212. Hirwa! You started put into practice what you have studied. lets keep up putting words to action. moreover, you are applying this concept ”Planting your own (groceries) food is like printing your own (Cash) money. Never give up. Turagushyigikiye.

  213. The powers of the youth groups is great but try to orient youth in your business. In fact, the problem will be how sure are you that young people will be willing and want to go in this business even if they have power?

  214. my friend HIRWA, What a timely and appropriate idea, this is a wonderfully thought innovation, the Tweze organic liquid is friend to environment. All the best.

  215. This is an excellent initiative and great work. This deserves gratitude and acknowledgement. It expresses your hardworking. Good luck!

  216. I would suggest that you continue, and in the future consider increasing the space and investing in developing the trees and shrubs into a health product. Create a small plant for all those processes. Thanks.
