Crops & Agri Business Development

We promote adoption of good agribusiness based farming practices that increase productivity and profitability of the agro-enterprise prioritized by the target community.

Our emphasis is based on farming practices that integrate both modern technologies and local innovation thus resulting in better yield, less production cost and a well conserved environment.

Market access and linkage is critical for any success of agro-based enterprise. Our agribusiness approach encourages involvement of all players in the value chain.
