KNOWLEDGE SHARING BUILDS WEALTH
The Conservation Farming Unit (CFU) works to provide small and medium scale farmers with the supporting environment, knowledge and practical experience to help them successfully adopt conservation farming and conservation agriculture practices.
Farmers trained per year
We train over 200,000 farmers each year in 45 districts of Zambia. Nearly 50% of the farmers that we train are women
Of trained farmers adopting CA
In the last 2 years, over 54% of the farmers that we trained went on to adopt CA practices for the first time.
Those farmers who adopted went on to increase their yield by an average of 88% above those who did not.
Production value per hectares/ year
It is estimated that each farmer who benefits from our training increases their production value by $187 per hectare/year.
