  • Results showed that there is highly significant (P < 0.0001) between- and within-tree variation characterised fruits and seed characters. Between-site phenotypic variation was not significant.Stearic and oleic acid percentages in seed fat ranged from 44.16% to 66.12%, and from 24.95% to 48.42% per tree sample, respectively. Moderate repeatabilities were identified in fruit characters and mean seed mass. Moderate positive relationships were found between stearic and oleic acid percentages. Seed fat profiles were not found to vary with other fruit characters.

  • Daniel A. Ofori Asaah, E., Peprah, T., Tsobeng, A., Tchoundjeu, Z., Munjuga, M., Rutatina, F., Anjarwalla, P., Mowo, J.G., Jamnadass, R. WORLD CONGRESS ON AGROFORESTRY 2014, 10-14 FEBRUARY 2014, DELHI, INDIA Public-Private partnerships on tree domestication for sustainable agroforestry and business innovations: Allanblackia species as a case study Contact: Daniel Ofori: d.ofori@cgiar.org World Agroforestry Centre, United Nations Avenue, Gigiri, Box 30677-00100, Nairobi, Kenya
  • Allanblackia tree, fruits and seeds
  • Importance of Allanblackia • Fatty acids consists mostly of oleic and stearic acids (40-51% and 45-58%, respectively) • Oil used locally for cooking, soap and ointments • Industrial scale in food products • Fruit for whisky, jam, juice • Wood for timber • The bark extracts for medicine (coughs, dysentery, diarrhea, toothache, aphrodisiac and pain reliever).
  • Demand and supply levels • Oil – EU Certification • Oil demand >100,000 tons/yr • Supply = 210 tons/yr Country Wild seed collection (tons) Oil from wild seed collection (tons) Tanzania 450 150 Ghana 110 40 Nigeria 60 20
  • Production/ income potential 1 tree 120 fruits 120 fruits 40 kg dry seeds 1kg dry seeds $0.40 1 tree/40kg seeds $16.00 40 kg dry seeds 12 kg oil 100,000 tons 8,333,333 trees Farmer income $133,333,333.33
  • The main challenges in production: • Wild harvesting cannot sustain supply to industry • Both the tree and its habitat are under threat • Very limited knowledge on Allanblackia cultivation • Lack of quality planting stocks • Propagation from seed; seed dormancy, dioecious • Long gestation period • Limited investment potential at small holder level
  • Challenges in research and development • Lack of funding for research and product development • Inadequate support from public and private sector in adoption and commercialization of research findings • Poor information flow from the research institutions to the end-users, thereby affecting negatively adoption of research findings and innovations • Scientists do not have skills required for business development
  • Public-private partnerships ( PPPs) • Established in 2002 • Multi-country PPP, multi institutions • Its main aim is to domesticate Allanblackia species in Africa through engagement of boundary partners
  • Main components of AB domestication • Sensitization and encouragement of farmers to participate in AB domestication • Range-wide germplasm collection, characterization, selection of superior germplasm, development of propagation methods and gene conservation • Ecology, abundance and sustainable harvesting • Integration of AB in farming systems and agroforestry development • Facilitate development of marketing networks and supply chain
  • Current members of the partnership • Unilever: Funding, product development & marketing • ICRAF: Domestication - selection, propagation, germplasm distribution & conservation & agroforestry development • Novel International: Supply chain, marketing, multiplication and distribution • NARS, Universities, ANR etc.: support R&D • IUCN: sustainable harvesting & biodiversity conservation • Farmers: Smallholder agroforestry systems • FORM: Pilot plantation - Ghana • RSSDA: Pilot plantation - Nigeria • UEBT: Certification of organic and fair trade standards
  • Marketing Supply chain and market development
  • Tree-to-treevariationin stearicand oleic acidcontent- Allanblackiafloribunda Allanblackia floribunda identified ‘‘plus trees’’ for fruit/seed production using the independent culling method on trees surveyed in four wild stands in Cameroon.

  • Benefits of PPP • Brings together stakeholders with different interests and organisational capacities • Shares resources for increasing cost-efficiency • Avoids duplications • Accelerates technology transfer, foster application by the private sector & increase private sector investments • Enhances adoption and impacts of research/ innovation
  • Achievements • Provision of quality germplasm • Development of supply chain • Market development • Product development - 2014
  • Constraints • Different modes of operation by different organizations • Financing not stable • Trust and release of information
  • Lessons learned • PPP improves linkages between research, actors in the value chain and end-users • Development of programs in close collaboration with strategic partners/ the private sector is beneficial • Promotion of a new species needs strong engagement with markets • Need for government policy support
