Capacity building of agriculture extension officers and farmers in ICT skills
Kooperationsgesuch | Union Syndicale des Agriculteurs USA-Togo
The Agricultural project will support the expansion of Government technical services in continuing agricultural programs. The project consists of: 1) settlement on permanent farm holdings of a number of Togolese families over a five year period. It would involve general soil classification, semi-detailed classification, establishment of fire protection belts, and development of tree crops (oil palms, rubber, coffee, cacao, and fruits); 2) improvement in cattle breeding, which includes the establishment of cattle disease control. In addition, slaughterhouses, and meat handling facilities will be constructed, and the required equipment supplied.
