LOW PRODUCTIVITY

  • Improving agriculture productivity to increasing market demand and enhance smallholder farmers’ income.
  • Smallholder farmers across the Sub-Saharan Africa still rely on traditional farming systems at both pre and post harvest stages. Even though the farmers recognize the importance of improved technology in increasing yield, they lack access to finance, information and inputs to adopt these technologies.

    Thus, smallholders are constrained in viscous loop of poor production and low income. Farmers are the key to ending hunger and poverty in our lifetime. Poverty today is concentrated in one profession: farming. Most people living on $1 a day are farmers.

    In Sub-Saharan Africa, more than 50 million families earn a living from small farms, which produce 80 percent of the continent’s food. But harvests still lag far behind the rest of the world.

    This is a huge opportunity. Farmers who use optimal seed and agriculture techniques can grow much more on the same plot of land. We just need to get proven tools’ in farmers hands.
