A cut above the rest

Using secateurs to give the clean cut that stimulates re-growth, Phylis Wambui Mungai harvests branches of Calliandra - one of the nine recommended fodder species - from the rows of one metre high shrubs planted on the contours of her sloping farmland. She systematically cuts from each shrub every 8-12 weeks.
