  • Community Action Plans1. Crop production – on-station and on-farm • Varietal trials • Soil fertility management • Cropping dates/spraying regimes • Striga management • Community-based seed production2. Livestock – poultry, sheep/goats • Disease and pest management • Feeding management3. Capacity building • Farmers • Research and extension staff
  • Outputs: 2012 Work-plans Outcome 1 Outcome 2 Improved Crop- Improved Nutrient Feed Livestock Cycling production Production Output 5: Partnerships and Capacity Building Outcome 3 Outcome 4 Improved Water Improved Nutrition Management of Women and Children
  • Crop production - implemented work1. Technology generation – on-station2. On-farm demonstrations3. Community seed production4. Integrated soil and water management5. Capacity building – researchers and farmers
  • Sobean - inoculation & P fertilizer
  • On-farm demonstrations – improved varieties
  • On-farm Demonstration – Maize
  • On-farm demonstrations - legumes
  • On-farm Demonstrations – Binaba
  • On-farm demonstration: Extra-early maize
  • On-farm demonstration – field day
  • Community seed production
  • Soil & water: implemented work1. Scale out and up proven small-scale irrigation technologies.2. Estimate water productivity3. Build capacity of partners
  • Soil and water conservation - training
  • Livestock: implemented work1. Workshop – constraints and opportunities2. Strengthened livestock value chains3. Tested feed & health options to increase output4. Disseminated improved milk processing options5. Short-course on crop-livestock production
  • Guinea fowl – intensive production
  • Pito mash: Cheaper guinea fowl feed
  • Better feeding and health: reduces sheep/goat mortality T1: Farmers’ feeding practice (F) T2: F + Improved health care (H) T4: H + Supplementation
  • Improving nutrition- implemented work1. Review on nutritional status2. Review of food safety issues.3. Study existing processors & their needs assessment4. Educate and train households on processing and use of cereals and legumes.
  • Milk processing: education
  • Milk processing training
  • Nutritional education - food groups
