N2Africa - Putting nitrogen fixation to work for smallholder farmers in Africa
Pawe Cluster Partnership:
Achievements, Lessons & Way Forwards
Getachew Yilma and Fitsum Miruts
• Pawe is far from the central market and for updated market
information.
• Seed germination failures in some farms
• Lack of strong commitment of Mama union managers to deal with
AKF in the current market price.
Introduction
We would like to strongly acknowledge N2Africa project for the technical and
financial support with the aim of benefiting small holder farmers in legume
technologies.

N2Africa project is funded by BMGF
Main Achievements/Progresses in 2016
• Farmers Primary cooperatives are the most important
organizations in technology dissemination.
• Farmers are willing to adopt any legume technology if the market
and food preparation issues are secured.
• PPPs are very important keys for the sustainable legume
production and marketing system.
• Multi stakeholder approach for legume production and marketing
very ideal approach which should be strengthen more.
• Cereal rotation with soya bean is better than continuous cropping
• Further agronomic researches are needed to have the best
technologies, i.e. as investigated in 2016, common bean inoculant,
HB A15 is better inoculant than HB 429.
Lessons Learned
• Pawe PPP Cluster operates in Benishangul Gumuz Region
(Pawe Mandura Dibatie, Jawi districts/ woredas), north-western
Ethiopia, which focus on soybean and common bean.
• The target legumes are soybean and common bean.
• The partners in the cluster are EIAR-PARC, Mama Union, MBI,
AKF, Zonal and District BoAs, Diguay private farm.
Way Forwards
• Creating strong commitment and capacity building for Mama
Union, FCUs and other partners will be important to sustain and
strengthen the system.
• Using mechanized harvesting and threshing machines are
mandatory for better quality produces.
Capacity Development
• 158 beneficiaries were trained on Bio-fertilizer, legume agronomy,
post harvest management and quality aspects of soya bean,
marketing system and busyness of soybean.
• Further trainings will be given on agri-business models and
marketing for primary cooperatives and Mama Union.
• A motor-bike given to Mama Union to follow up the ground
activities.
Dissemination
• About 400 adaptation and 10 demonstration trials were established
in Pawe, Mandura, Dibatie and Jawi districts; more than 700
farmers were benefited directly in the disseminations.
• Using FCUs for dissemination is very important to manage and
organize easily and spill-over to the surrounding farming
communities.
• Amount and types of inputs disseminated for target farmers.
Input Supply
• Basic seed: 2 ha of soya bean (Belessa 95) multiplied by EIAR-
PARC.
• Certified seed (C1): 15 ha of soybean (Belesa 95) multiplied at
Diguay private farm.
• Certified seed (C1): 3 ha of common bean (Nasir) multiplied by
Community based Seed Producers.
• Inoculant supplier MBI signed the contractual agreement to
supply inoculant directly to Mama Union in which 1000 packets of
inoculant delivered to small holder farmers.
Type of inputs Unit Amount
Soya bean seed kg 1636
Common bean seed kg 893
Bio-fertilizer packet 733
Inorganic fertilizer /NPS/ kg 948
Market Linkages
• It is on progress to sign contract agreement between Mama Union
and Tsehay Union for the grain market.
• Potentially 100 tons of soybean grain is expected to be marketed.

Pawe Cluster Partnership: Achievements, lessons and way forwards

  • 1. N2Africa - Putting nitrogen fixation to work for smallholder farmers in Africa Pawe Cluster Partnership: Achievements, Lessons & Way Forwards Getachew Yilma and Fitsum Miruts • Pawe is far from the central market and for updated market information. • Seed germination failures in some farms • Lack of strong commitment of Mama union managers to deal with AKF in the current market price. Introduction We would like to strongly acknowledge N2Africa project for the technical and financial support with the aim of benefiting small holder farmers in legume technologies. Acknowledgements Challenges faced in Implementations ILRI-N2Africa Box 5689 Addis Ababa, Ethiopia ● +251 11617 2200/25/33/35 ilri.org ● n2africa.org ● n2africa-Ethiopia.wikispaces.com N2Africa project is funded by BMGF Main Achievements/Progresses in 2016 • Farmers Primary cooperatives are the most important organizations in technology dissemination. • Farmers are willing to adopt any legume technology if the market and food preparation issues are secured. • PPPs are very important keys for the sustainable legume production and marketing system. • Multi stakeholder approach for legume production and marketing very ideal approach which should be strengthen more. • Cereal rotation with soya bean is better than continuous cropping • Further agronomic researches are needed to have the best technologies, i.e. as investigated in 2016, common bean inoculant, HB A15 is better inoculant than HB 429. Lessons Learned • Pawe PPP Cluster operates in Benishangul Gumuz Region (Pawe Mandura Dibatie, Jawi districts/ woredas), north-western Ethiopia, which focus on soybean and common bean. • The target legumes are soybean and common bean. • The partners in the cluster are EIAR-PARC, Mama Union, MBI, AKF, Zonal and District BoAs, Diguay private farm. Way Forwards • Creating strong commitment and capacity building for Mama Union, FCUs and other partners will be important to sustain and strengthen the system. • Using mechanized harvesting and threshing machines are mandatory for better quality produces. Capacity Development • 158 beneficiaries were trained on Bio-fertilizer, legume agronomy, post harvest management and quality aspects of soya bean, marketing system and busyness of soybean. • Further trainings will be given on agri-business models and marketing for primary cooperatives and Mama Union. • A motor-bike given to Mama Union to follow up the ground activities. Dissemination • About 400 adaptation and 10 demonstration trials were established in Pawe, Mandura, Dibatie and Jawi districts; more than 700 farmers were benefited directly in the disseminations. • Using FCUs for dissemination is very important to manage and organize easily and spill-over to the surrounding farming communities. • Amount and types of inputs disseminated for target farmers. Input Supply • Basic seed: 2 ha of soya bean (Belessa 95) multiplied by EIAR- PARC. • Certified seed (C1): 15 ha of soybean (Belesa 95) multiplied at Diguay private farm. • Certified seed (C1): 3 ha of common bean (Nasir) multiplied by Community based Seed Producers. • Inoculant supplier MBI signed the contractual agreement to supply inoculant directly to Mama Union in which 1000 packets of inoculant delivered to small holder farmers. Type of inputs Unit Amount Soya bean seed kg 1636 Common bean seed kg 893 Bio-fertilizer packet 733 Inorganic fertilizer /NPS/ kg 948 Market Linkages • It is on progress to sign contract agreement between Mama Union and Tsehay Union for the grain market. • Potentially 100 tons of soybean grain is expected to be marketed.
