Analysis RA Farmers In Kano
• 98 % were males
• 2 % were females
• Low female participation is because they are
not allowed to be engaged freely in farming
activities because of religious and cultural
believes.
• However, training female service providers
may improve women participation in the
adoption of RA
6
MONITORINGS
• 3 monitoring trips were conducted by Kokou &
Tarfa
• 2 monitoring tours were conducted by Tarfa
alone
• Few ODK had problems with the soft ware and
were re-installed during the monitoring tours

Remaining activities
• Currently soil sampling is going on and will be
completed by 1st week of March, 2017
• Collections and delivery of the soil samples to
the appropriate laboratory
• Workshop for development of strategy to scale
up RA is planned for 27th February to 1st March
2017
9
SUCCESS STORIES
• Service provider from warawa bought and
android phone to download RA for personal
use
• Service provider procured a piece of land using
remunerations gotten from the Japan project
• 75 youth obtained knowledge and capacity to
use android phones for RA, GPS, ODK,
Distance and area measurement.
• Many farmers said RA increased their rice yield
and decreased amount of fertilizer used.
10
SUCCESS STORIES
• Federal Department of Agricultural extension
(FDAE) Abuja has requested for me on RA for
possible inclusion in the national extension
systems.
• The National Agricultural Extension Research
and Liaison services (NAERLS) ABU Zaria,
which has national mandate for research in
extension methodologies has also shown
interest in the use of the RA tool by the
institute.
• Local authorities commended RA team
members for keeping to time on appoinments
11
SUCCESS STORIES
• International organizations (IPNI) are
studying what we doing with RA for
possible development of similar tools for
maize (TAMASA).
12
Planning for coming season
• USAID Markets project have requested for
training of 23 staff (7th-11th March is fixed for
this training)
• SG, 2000 and other seed companies may take
up the scaling up of RA for their farmers
(clarification may come during workshop)
• Target area is Kano rice hub
13
CONSTRAINTS
• Cost of android phones and tablets may limit
access to the RiceAdvice tool.
• The cost of RiceAdvice service is not yet
ascertained
• About 2-3 tablets were bad
• Lost of installed programme on tablet (RA &
ODK)
• 3 tablets were faulty at the point of collection
14
Conclusions
• RA offers great opportunity for improving rice
yield in farmers’ fields in Kano state, Nigeria
• Sustainable out-scaling mechanism (e.g.
business model development including youth
linking with other agricultural services) can be
sustain the delivery of RA to farmers.
