pot holing
 n.— «Pot holing refers to a conservation farming technique that involves making holes in the field. During crop production, inputs ¾ fertilizers/manure, seed, water, lime ¾ all concentrate in the prepared hole as opposed to being spread over an area in furrow cultivation. This concentration of growth enhancing factors around the plant significantly increases yield.» —“Zambia—Success Stories: Potholing Technology: Francis Malambo’s Survival Technique in the Face of Cattle Losses” USAID Apr.-May, 2000.
