Grace is a farmer in BRAC's Agriculture project
BRAC takes an integrated approach to help people rise out of poverty and realize their potential. This is why BRAC has been developing an extensive agricultural network that invests in research and technology that could increase farming yields, and as a result empower farmers in Tanzania.
BRAC has already established an effective method of production, distribution and marketing of quality seeds at reasonable prices and has created a system where poor farmers receive microcredit support. There are also numerous agricultural training programs provided to the farmers, such as the Vegetable and Kitchen Farmers program, where the farmers are provided with technical knowledge about producing simple crops in small pieces of land.
However, BRAC wants to go beyond its current success in Tanzania and develop a system where production is increased by expanding irrigation, there is greater access to quality fertilizers and pesticides, and larger investment in its agriculture research stations to develop disease-resistant seed varieties. The current activities along with BRAC’s plan to expand the project will target the problem of poor crop productivity in a more effective manner.
