In implementing the IFAD-FGN Agricultural Value Chain Development Programme, an identified entry point is the organized farmers’ groups in the six focal states. In order to establish the current baseline of the status, performance and maturity of these farmers groups, a mapping/study was conducted by an Oxfam-NANTS partnership commissioned by IFAD. Interaction with the grassroots farmers’ organizations was carried out through extensive interviews of the various groups organized around rice and cassava production, processing and marketing in the focal local governments of the six states.
Data on various parameters of maturity, productivity and other activities along the value chains were obtained and various aspects of their operations were investigated in order to establish a baseline and determine the areas of possible interventions to strengthen the capacity of the groups to deliver value added services to their members which in turn, enhances the earnings of the small holder farmers within the value chains.
