Neighbor Bio - Musa

Musa has been farming in the Jordan Valley for almost 20 years and is a wealth of information.  He regularly consults with the AC4D team regarding planting dates, plant health, early fertilization and cost effective irrigation practices.  We are learning a great deal from him.  This year he will be planting 4 units, about 40 acres, all in open-field eggplant despite his experience with a wide range of vegetable crops.  His main reason for this crop selection is that eggplant can be harvested for well over 4 months enabling him to sell across a wide range of prices as well as the fact that the tomato market has been weak due to closed borders to Iraq and Syria for the last two years.
