This will be a week of transformation for the AC4D trial and demo farm. We will go from being a well prepared piece of land to a working farm in a matter of days. Water is being pumped into our storage tank, driplines are being laid, first crops planted and with the go ahead from our partners at the Australian Embassy - greenhouses will be set up. We will also begin solar soil sterilization on the plots where our greenhouses will stand. This is slated to be the hottest week on record in Jordan so the whole Jordan Valley agricultural community is hoping for early season rains to get moisture back into the soil after early season plowing.
