12 - Plant gardens within forest wind breaks, or plant windbreaks to protect sensitive crops (glyricidia)
13 - Avoidance of agricultural activities in the immediate coastal strip
14 - Plant leafy crops in gardens that are well sheltered from winds (e.g. valleys etc)
15 - Plant root crops in exposed areas
16 - Cut the leaves of bananas prior to a cyclone to prevent uprooting
17 - Cut the stems of manioc prior to a cyclone to prevent uprooting
18 - Introduce Dwarf Varieties of manioc that will be less susceptible to wind damage
19 - Remove yam stakes during pre cyclone preparations
20 - Utilize early harvest varieties of yam (6 months) that can be harvested before cyclone season
163 - Utilize appropriate building materials for livestock enclosres that can withstand climtic extremes
219 - Create firebreaks between bush and garden areas
220 - Remove unnecessary weeds, dead trees, dry branches and dry organic litter from gardens
221 - Relocate gardens away from fire prone areas
222 - Burn flammable grasses around gardens in the wet season to prevent excessive fuel buildup
294 - Introduce and encourage wet tolerant species for seasonally waterlogged or low-lying areas.
295 - Undertake vegetative propagation to encourage rapid fruiting
296 - Utilize hormones to induce fruiting and flowering out of season
297 - Store seeds for use during low fruiting periods.
298 - Assess the fruiting calendars of different species in different climatic areas
299 - Protect of trees from rainfall/elements in green houses
