"KULIMA is tackling agricultural, environmental and climate change issues from the production side and seeking the high participation of smallholder farmers, because we know that we really need to implement agricultural good practices to protect resources, so as to increase productivity in a diversified and sustainable way."- Jean-Pierre BUSOGORO
"We have come to discover that before the FFS training, we weren’t aware about a lot of good practices that you can use for sustainable production. For example, the hot water treatment of banana suckers is an efficient practice which helps control the banana weevil without relying on pesticides." – Zondiwe Jere, KULIMA extension worker
"Following production of horticultural crops on our terraces, we have seen a lot of buyers coming to collect the produce from our site. This is interesting for us as we don't have to afford the transport cost from our production site to the market. We want to continue producing new crops on the terraces and to improve them, so that we can improve our production and revenues." – Mary Msukwa, KULIMA farmer working on the established terraces
*A participatory approach of “learning by doing”, which helps extension workers and farmers to test new techniques and develop skills for problem analysis and effective decision-making, based on the understanding of their local agro-ecosystems and crop agroecology.
