ISFM - The approach

Going beyond demo approach

The going beyond demos –a value chain approach will be the overarching strategy (Figure 1). The approach recognizes that demonstration of use of fertilizer, improved seeds and good agronomic practices that includes cereal-legume rotations/intercrops alone cannot effectively lead to massive uptake of soil fertility technologies by smallholder farmers. Farmers need to access farm inputs and output markets. Thus there is a need to link farmers to financing mechanisms in form of credit so that they are able to access inputs. Again, the farmers need to be linked to output markets that are functioning to enable them profit from.
