Firstly, it is important to understand the food and farming situation in the East African Region. This agricultural landscape is characterized by a high number of people engaged in agriculture, but a low output. Most estimates say that as many as 80% of the rural population, while around 20% of the overall population is food insecure. Obviously, there is a divide, where farmers are not able to produce enough food to feed themselves and their families.
In general, trainings, like the ones that we provide, teach important skills to farmers. They teach farmers how to properly utilize our crop protection solutions, and instruct farmers on the business aspect of farming, allowing them to profit from their wages. All aspects of such training allow farmers to, not only be more productive in terms of agriculture, but also how to properly leverage their crops once grown. Trainings helps to make up the gap that exists between the amount of labor put in and the output of most farming in the East African region.
