Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement (TOAM) Publications African Organic Agriculture Training Manual
Most small-holder farmers in Africa rely on locally available technologies and onfarm inputs to improve food production and food security for their families and for the market. In order to use available resources efficiently, apply appropriate technologies and implement sustainable practices, farmers need:
- Access to information, knowledge and the possibility to transform them into skills.
- Access to inputs such as seeds or biolological agents. > Access to sales markets.
- Access to supporting services, such as advice and microcredit, as well as supporting policies.
A major constraint to adopting low input sustainable agriculture in Africa is the low education level of the farmers. Nevertheless, African farmers, both women and men, show great interest for new methods of farming, especially if they are low-cost and promise to stabilize and increase their income.
