Challenge

Agricultural production and productivity by smallholder farmers in Mozambique, is still very low compared to smallholders' in the neighboring countries. The major factors contributing for low production and productivity include low demand and usage of improved inputs due to lack of knowledge of its benefits, lack or limited access to improved inputs combined with lack of input retail or distribution networks in the villages as well as the absence of structured markets for output collection.

Solution

As to change the current scenario AFAP will implement activities conducive to a) Stimulate increased demand and usage of enhancing productivity inputs by smallholder farmers combined with extension service; b) Develop and establish sustainable input distribution networks to supply improved inputs to smallholder farmers; c) Stimulate increased supply of enhancing productivity inputs to smallholder farmers; and d) Develop and establish sustainable output market networks to absorb farmers produce.

Long-Term Impact

As result of AFAP interventions around 800,000 smallholder farmers will increase agricultural production, productivity, incomes and food security through the access, use and usage of enhancing productivity inputs and applying best agricultural practices or technologies as supported by secured input distribution network and output markets to provide inputs and ensure the flow of production. Farmers will just have to focus on production and not worry about where to buy inputs and sell outputs
