Potential irrigated crop value chain interventions for the LIVES project

  1. 1. Potential irrigated crop value chain interventions for the LIVES project Dirk HoekstraLIVES Commodity Value Chain Development Inception Workshop, Addis Ababa, 21–24 January 2013
  2. 2. Selected value chains• Vegetables – onions, tomato, cabbages, carrots, potatoes• Fruits – mango, avocado, papaya, banana, apple, plums, citrus• Fodder – Grasses, legumes
  3. 3. Producers/markets• Producers – Individually irrigated farms (self selected) – Farmers in irrigation schemes (not preselected)• Markets – Individual HH – Traders – Large scale fruit and vegetable growers – Supermarkets – Juice houses – Export ???
  4. 4. Potential irrigated crop interventions• On - farm – Crop production, water use• Input supply and services – Crops – Water• Marketing/processing
  5. 5. Production interventions• Increasing production, productivity and income of irrigated crop commodities – Distinguish between different farm types/systems and production interventions – Improved/marketed demanded varieties – Improved crop and water husbandry practices, including use of improved inputs/irrigation equipment, planting schedules, post harvest, quality – Increased irrigated area and percentage high value crops
  6. 6. Varieties• Fruits – Flesh/seed ratio - mango, avocado – Taste - all fruits – Productivity – all fruits – Early maturing – all fruits• Vegetables – Onion vs shallot – Productivity – all vegetables• Fodder – High value - protein rich – Productivity
  7. 7. Improved crop/water husbandry practices• Crop rotation – including annual fodder crops• Pest control• Staggered planting• Irrigation equipment/methods• Post harvest
  8. 8. Water source/storage
  9. 9. Irrigation lifting equipment
  10. 10. Irrigation water distribution system
  11. 11. Post harvest
  12. 12. Crop Input/service productioninterventions by groups and individuals• Seed multiplication – Onion seed – Potato seed – Forage seed• Seedling multiplication – Fruit nurseries – grafting and mother trees – Banana - suckers – Vegetable seedlings – onion, pepper
  13. 13. Fruit seedling nurseries
  14. 14. Onion seed multiplication
  15. 15. Crop Input/service supply interventions• Linkages between federal/regional agri- business with village/district/zonal level agri- businesses – Irrigation equipment – Agro-chemicals• Linkages between federal/regional level suppliers of improved varieties with District level multipliers – Certification of producers of seed/seedlings
  16. 16. Processing and marketing interventions• Improved marketing and processing of crop products by district/zonal level cooperatives and private entrepreneurs – Introduction small scale processing and storage equipment – Bulking produce for marketing – Formation of collective structures marketing for producers (formal and informal) – Contract farming thru linkages
  17. 17. Processing and marketing interventions• Linkages between federal/regional agri- businesses with district level processors and traders – Fruit and vegetable whole sale – Selected supermarkets• Linkages between district/village level service providers and federal level service institutions – Crop prices (internet) – EXC and projects – Information – Associations (horticulture) and projects – Quality – Bureau of quality and standards/EIAR
