The RESADE project is scaling out crop technologies through increased participation of women and youth farmers in villages surrounding the BPHs. Through various training organized by the RESADE country team in Togo, farmers have shown interest in several technologies that can enhance their participation in crop value chains and hence improve farm production and incomes from crop sales. The current video shows both women and youth farmers who express interest in use of improved crop varieties. Experimental results from the BPH have shown increased yields from improved crop varieties of crops such as sorghum, pearl millet and cowpea. Armed with this knowledge, farmer have requested training in the development of a community seed bank that can reduce the challenges of growing poor quality seeds from unknown vendors. The current video shows the importance of farmer knowledge in the identification of potential solutions to problems affecting food security at village level.
