    Accelerating Vegetable Productivity Improvement (AVPI) :Annual Report November 2017 – October 2018
    (2018) IFDC
    The Walmart Foundation entered into an agreement with the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC) on August 23, 2016, for the "Accelerating Vegetable Productivity Improvement" (AVPI) project, spanning two years. The project, commencing in November 2016, aimed to empower low-income women horticulture farmers in Bangladesh by introducing advanced agricultural production technologies and enhancing market knowledge. Despite an initial oversight in the project duration, an amendment extended it until December 2018. AVPI sought to build on the successes of the 2013-15 Walmart Foundation-IFDC partnership, emphasizing fertilizer deep placement (FDP) and introducing new production technologies. The project focused on 10 districts, targeting 24 sub-districts and 47 village clusters, benefiting approximately 37,892 women farmers. AVPI prioritized local ownership and sustainable practices, partnering with private sector input dealers and collaborating with the Department of Agricultural Extension. The goals included consolidating previous gains, introducing new technologies, and improving market knowledge for women vegetable farmers. The project achieved significant milestones, covering diverse areas such as soil fertility mapping, technology demonstrations, regulatory framework enhancement, and COVID-19 impact assessments on the fertilizer sector in Senegal.

    Feed The Future Senegal DUNDËL SUUF Project 2021 Annual Report
    (2021) IFDC
    The Government of Senegal (GoS), through the Senegalese Agriculture Cadence Acceleration Program (PRACAS), the National Agricultural Investment Program for Food Security and Nutrition (PNIASAN) and the Emerging Senegal Plan (PSE), continues to support the agricultural sector through a national program of subsidies for seeds, fertilizers and agricultural equipment with the objective of sustainably increasing production to achieve self-sufficiency in rice, maize, millet, sorghum, onion and potato, and even exporting surpluses of horticultural products. To contribute to the goals of these GoS programs, the USAID/West Africa Regional Mission (WARM) signed, on September 30, 2019, an amendment to the Enhancing Growth through Regional Agricultural Input Systems (EnGRAIS) cooperative agreement to incorporate a buy-in from USAID/Senegal to fund the Feed the Future Senegal Dundël Suuf project for a period of 3 years (October 2019 - September 2022). The aim of Dundël Suuf (DS) is to increase agricultural productivity by promoting an inclusive and sustainable reduction of hunger, poverty, and malnutrition while its strategic objective remains to increase the availability and use of new quality fertilizers through efficient private sector-led supply systems to improve and maintain soil fertility in Senegal. The project activities are organized into three major components which are: (1) Improved and appropriate fertilizer formulas developed and made available to farmers (2) Proven and environmentally sound fertilizer products and technologies disseminated and upscaled, (3) Improved fertilizer policy and regulatory environment. The main beneficiaries are small farmers; input supply chain actors; extension and research agents; and vulnerable groups. The project operates in the five Feed the Future Zones of Influence (ZoI) which are Casamance, Senegal Oriental, the Peanut Basin, Niayes and the Senegal River Valley. The target crops are dry cereals, rice, and vegetables.

    Promotion of Nutrition-Senstive Potato Value Chain East Africa-Uganda (PNSP) Annual Report 2018
    (2018) IFDC
    This material discusses the objectives, achievements, risks, and adjustments of the Potato Nutrition and Seed Potato Project (PNSP) in Uganda. The three main objectives are to increase the productivity of small-scale potato producers, strengthen coordination in the potato value chain, and improve dietary diversity in vulnerable groups. The achievement of these objectives is assessed through various indicators, such as increased productivity, adoption of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), improved marketing opportunities, and enhanced knowledge of family nutrition. The project also faces risks, including climate change impact, seed quality standards, and stakeholder collaboration issues.

    Promotion of Nutrition-Senstive Potato Value Chain East Africa-Uganda (PNSP) Annual Report 2019
    (2019) IFDC
    This module focuses on achieving three key objectives in the potato value chain in Eastern Uganda. Objective 1 aims to enhance the productivity of 8,000 small-scale potato producers through training and adoption of Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs). Objective 2 seeks to strengthen coordination within the potato value chain, while Objective 3 aims to improve the dietary diversity of vulnerable groups in the region. The assessment reveals that Objective 1 has made progress with increased adoption of GAPs, although challenges persist in accessing quality seed. Objectives 2 and 3 are on track. Risks include declining soil fertility, disease pressure, and limited access to certified seed. The module aligns with national and European Union development strategies and collaborates with various donors and organizations in the agricultural sector. Proposed adjustments are discussed for continued improvement.
