It is from this harsh background that the young farmer became determined to develop techniques that would bring exhausted soil back into production. His efforts have outdone the work of the world's leading scientists and technological advances costing millions of pounds. They may also yet prove crucial to the future of the world's rapidly growing population and global food demands.The Man Who Stopped the Desert featuring Yacouba Sawadogo is available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video.
