Illovo Sugar, Mozambique - Capacity building initiative for small growers

Agri-IQ has partnered with associates to provide a capacity building programme to the Maragra Smallholder Sugarcane Development Project in Mozambique.

The Project is based on developing people. This business and farmer support programme develops people to change from subsistence farming to commercial sugarcane and food crop farming. The small grower communities will be developed to form groups in order to take advantage of the opportunity to be sugarcane farmers, with the principle of working together underpinning the farming development.

The Maragra small grower extension officers will be responsible for rolling out the 2-year training programme.This will enable these small growers to continue to manage their agricultural businesses in a sustainable manner.
