News Harvest season in Togo
It has been harvest season in Togo for a few weeks now and thus also on our training farm CPIA and in our project in the prefecture of Blitta. At CPIA, near Sokodé, maize was harvested, among other things. Our 18 trainee agroentrepreneurs work hand in hand with our farm team. Now the harvest of soy and rice is still to come.
In our project in Blitta, in the central region of Togo, we have supported six production communities in their foundation with funding from the Bavarian State Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry (StMELF). A detailed description of the project can be found here.
The production cooperatives grow yams, sesame, maize, soy, and rice together and have now successfully harvested yams. Maize and soy harvesting is well underway, and rice harvesting is scheduled for the next few weeks. Meanwhile, the cooperatives have successfully started selling the produce together and have been able to generate an additional income.
