Supporting Roots and Tubers, September 2015

With small plots but large families, farmers in Ethiopia are constantly exploring new, innovative and low-cost approaches to intensify production and productivity. Although cereals have long been the staple crops in some areas, smallholders are experimenting with roots and tubers – potatoes, sweet potatoes, cassava, taro and others to improve household food security. The AKLDP supports a new Roots and Tuber Crops Working Group, which brings together lead agriculture sector policy makers, researchers, project implementers, extension workers, traders and agro-processors to share emerging good practice – read the report of their first meeting here Proceedings_Roots_and_Tubers_meeting


Supporting Cereals and Legumes, October 2015

Cereals and legumes are major crops for millions of farmers in Ethiopia. The Cereals and Legumes Working Group brings together policymakers, researchers, project implementers, agriculture extension specialists and private sector agricultural enterprises to share new thinking, lessons learned and emerging good practice in the cereals and legumes subsector. This meeting focused on wheat – bread and durum – which is grown by around 4.5 million Ethiopian smallholders.  Despite years of research, extension and a doubling of production, Ethiopia continues to import more than half-million metric tonnes of wheat annually.  What can be done to reduce imports and boost wheat production?  Read the proceedings of the meeting here: CLG Proceedings 3rd
