Despite increasing fuel and irrigation costs, and problems with soil salinity, farmers in Bangladesh are demonstrating how it is possible to save water and overcome salinity with conservation agriculture. In this video, inspiring portraits are presented of farmers and agricultural service providers from both the south and north of Bangladesh, all of whom are using small-scale and appropriate machinery, and crop management practices that reduce tillage to improve the productivity of their farming enterprises. The crop management principles shown in this video can be broadly applied in many parts of the globe -- it is possible to save water and overcome salinity with conservation agriculture! ***
