Grains Production

Optimal inputs and practices can help low-income producers achieve crop productivity closer to seed potential.


The women's incomes also increased

Low income producers typically do not know that using good inputs in the right mix for a specific soil type and following good practices for growing the crops, all other things being equal, would achieve productivity levels closer to the genetic potential of a given seed.


On the BIF programme we proved that using the right inputs, planting the right varieties and knowing good agricultural practices helps them achieve improved incomes.


This was true irrespective of gender and we were able to show that women could increase their incomes in much the same way as the men could. Getting this combination (bundled service) in the hands of an ever-increasing number of low-income producers is one problem we now seek to address.
