Giving back to farmers
One of the primary goals of the project is to respond to what farmers want and request. During the 408 and surveys in 13 villages, farmers repeatedly asked for help with the identification (and response) to cassava pests and disease.
In response, we are undertaking the development of a pamphlet, which will be designed in partnership with a local illustrator/artist. Our goal is to produce two versions (one for experts and extension agents, and one for farmers).
This output is currently underway, and is being led by a University of Melbourne Honours student.
