Project completed in 2010
The overall objective of this project is to strengthen sorghum and pearl millet supply chains and to increase the uptake of these grains in commercial poultry feeds and poultry production. The project mobilises groups of small-scale sorghum and pearl millet farmers in order to improve crop productivity and enhance harvesting, bulking, storage and handling practices of grain. The project also engages private seed companies, input suppliers and farmer groups for effective input delivery mechanisms. Linking farmer groups with poultry feed manufacturing companies and poultry producers will strengthen market systems for transport and sale of grain.
