There might be number of causes, first by saying low yield what is low yield and what is the potential of the area based on environment and management, low yields compared to what colleugue. Look at the soil physical and chemical properties, cultivar choice (do you have data on cultivar trial over time), the support for farmers is an important link to the whole puzzle. Good luck Forget all of the above except the comments from Phendukani Hlatshwayo.

First you need to know what the soil types are in terms of texture, followed by the chemical characteristics (chemical element content, pH, E.C. CEC, SOM, etc).

What are the cimatic conditions (rainfall, high low temperatures, etc).

What is the :

• Selection of seed cultivar

• Cultivation methods / operations

• Irrigation water quality if used

• Irrigation availability

In other word all the necessities for general farming practices

Once all these are known then corrective amendments and a nutritional programme can be formulated with the use of biological products applied.

Stick to the basics and common sense
