African Farmers Adopting a New Mentality to Small-Scale Farming
Small-scale farmers in Africa are increasingly facing challenges in production with factors such as climate change, drought, lack of access to capital, etc. taking its toll. It's necessary for these farmers to innovate and to form partnerships with organisations that can help them do so. In this, the farmers of Nakuru County has succeeded with the help of Premier Seed who assists farmers in building, although small, commercially viable farming businesses that are seeing them export to international markets. Simon Andys, founder of Premier Seed tells us more.
Premier Seed was born as a seeds company, importing and selling Open Pollinated Varieties and hybrid seeds that bring innovation and higher yields to African farmers. We immediately started giving full post-buy support to our clients in order to build a sustainable and long-term knowledge on modern agriculture practices.
