Summary: Our pilot project in Jere was a test of our model and the ideas we had about contract farming, How would farmers react to our proposition? How well would the crop fare? We knew we would have to gain the trust of the farmers over time and this was as good a time as any to start.

The results were excellent. We good good average yields. The farmers were very happy with the outcomes – even those who did poorly because of a lack of commitment. There was strong interest in continuing the work and we got over 5 times as many farmers reach out to us to join the program.

We’re all looking forward to the next crop on this site.
