Project Profile: Scaling-up Improved Legume Technologies in Tanzania

Using information campaigns to bring proven solutions to more legume farmers in Tanzania

Smallholder farmers in Africa have shown in field trials how improved legume varieties, nitrogen-fixing bacteria, high-quality seeds, and fertilizers can increase yields, reduce production costs, and enhance nutrition. Efforts are now underway to harness the power and reach of radio and other media to spread word of these technologies to 500,000 farming families in the Northern and Southern Highlands of Tanzania.
