Our Vision for the sector is: To transform agriculture from subsistence farming towards an efficient, globally competitive, market driven sector that assures food security, enhances livelihood of families and communities, promotes rural prosperity, natural resource conservation, and supports gender equity through technology.
TRANSFORMING AGRICULTURE TOWARDS AGRI-BUSINESS
Agri-Business involves “creating the pathway for our farmers who are in
the informal sector to transit and transform into Informal Sector.’
- Agribusiness is the key to resolving two of the great challenges of our time: reducing the poverty of the rural smallholder farmers and feeding our growing population.
- Agribusiness covers the supply of agricultural inputs, the production and processing of agricultural products, and their distribution to the final consumer.
Innovative rural & farming communities should focus on: agronomics, improving supply value chain, market information, climate change information and financing/funding information for farmers.
