Working with smallholder farmers in Tanzania is a bit challenging as most of them resided in villages and are not aware of the trending technologies in farming.
TANECU has a plan of digitizing the farms by mapping all farms. To do this, it is a must to give awareness to the farmers about this matter.
The above picture shows the farmers getting an introductory remark about what is going to be done on their farms by TANECU representative.
why is awareness important to farmers?
It is very difficult for the farmers to trust a person if he/she is not coming from the main association (TANECU). Hence the farmers needs to be informed about the plan and set up a meeting for them to cooperate with either an extension master or trainer.
