Winrock Asia Farmer-to-Farmer by librarian2 — last modified Jan 10, 2013 08:45 AM
Despite great advances in agricultural production in the last 50 years in Asia, rural poverty for farmers continues to be a significant problem, contributing to social unrest in many of the countries. Winrock and our partner, the Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC), propose to help alleviate rural poverty by strengthening four high-value agricultural sectors, focusing core activities in India, Nepal and Bangladesh, and also working in Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam and East Timor.
Winrock Central Asia Farmer-to-Farmer by librarian2 — last modified Jan 10, 2013 08:45 AM
Central Asian Republics have a poorly diversified agricultural base, limited production capacity, and antiquated and inefficient post-harvest processing capacity. Farmers and agribusinesses lack technical knowledge, equipment, and the finance and marketing skills needed to diversify their production, processing and marketing operations. Producers use unsustainable and inefficient production practices and poor water management techniques that lead to low productivity, reduced soil fertility, and wasteful flood irrigation. They are unable to qualify for credit to make improvements because they have limited financial assets and no credit history. Existing marketing channels are inefficient.
