Why SD Has Failed to Ensure Food Security

MATSAPHA, Swaziland – Local farmers often fail to produce enough food because they lack information about agro-inputs, said Bridget Okumu, IFDC market information systems specialist, during a three-day agro-dealer workshop.

To increase farmers’ access to information on fertilizers, seeds and crop protection products, AMITSA will be launched in Ethiopia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe by the end of 2011. AMITSA is a web- and mobile-based market information system on agro-inputs for eastern and southern Africa.
