Goal: Sustainably increase productivity of small-scale farmers and improve their livelihoods<br />Objective: Demonstrating to farmers new and improved technologies for crop production<br />Improvingknowledge and skillsoffarmers<br />Approach: Developing capacities of NAES<br /> Implementation of Farmer Learning Platforms<br />Involvementof international and national researchinstitutions<br />Involvementofotherstakeholders<br />
  3. 3. Farmer Learning Platform: <br /> Capacity building:<br />- extensionagents<br /> - lead/hostfarmers and communitybasedfacilitators<br /> - farmers<br /> - womenfarmers and otherunder-servedgroups<br />Field demonstrations<br /> - Technology Option Plots (TOP)<br /> - Women AssistedDemonstrations (WAD)<br /> - Community Variety Plots (CVP)<br /> - Production Test Plots (PTP)<br />
  4. 4. Farmer Learning Platform: <br /> 1. Planning sessions with NAES – national, regional, district level<br />- selectionofregions and communities<br /> - selectionof NAES counterparts and EAs involved<br />2.

  11. 11. Regional coverage in 2010: <br />
  12. 12. Problems:<br /> - low ration of EAs to farming households<br /> - infrastructure and accessibility<br /> - input supply, accessibility and costs<br /> - EA motivation, turn-over rate, education<br /> - researchsupport<br /> - sustainability and scalability<br />
  13. 13. Collaboration – research support<br /> - low-input technologies (effective 1st year)<br /> - fertilizer efficiency – fertility management<br /> - varieties - yield, resistance, nutritional quality<br /> - seed quality<br /> - pest & diseasecontrol<br /> - inputprovisionschemes<br /> - training, trainingmethods and trainingmaterials<br />
