Water harvesting in Nicaragua

Row upon row
  • Land of extremes
  • Just add water
  • Landscape transformed
  • Water harvester
  • Spray time
  • Row upon row
  • Field of dreams
  • Talking technology

Row upon row

Farmers are now growing beans, rice, maize and water melons on land that was arid and unproductive. Tilapia have been introduced to some of the reservoirs, as an alternative source of protein and income for farming families.
