Call: International Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials Seed Money Projects (SMPs) 2018

Seed Money Projects serve to initiate (or act as the ‘seed’ for) international partnerships for Dutch SMEs in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors. The creation of a consortium is key in this. The objective is to contribute to the sustainable development of a local agricultural and/or horticultural system. This is conditional on the participation of a local problem owner (a business and/or government) able to point to a demand and necessity for the project. A Seed Money Project results in an international partnership feasibility business model. A good business model is managed and supported by business and must be capable of ‘tempting’ other potential candidate consortium members to participate and thus contribute to international system solutions in the Agri & Food and Horticulture & Starting Materials sectors.

LANDac is now accepting submissions for its Annual International Conference 2018!


LANDac’s Annual International Conference 2018 will take place on 28th and 29th June 2018 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

The conference will look at land investments through the lens of mobility. What are the implications of land based investments on the movements of people, and on processes of urbanization? And how have displacement and population movements contributed to new and contesting land claims?

The 2018 conference takes this land-mobilities nexus as a starting point, focusing on the extent to which land acquisitions trigger the inflow or outflow of particular groups of people – and also yield other mobilities (capital, goods, ideas etc.) and land claims. Given the variety of mobilities, what are good ways forward in land governance? To what extent can land governance contribute to inclusive development – preventing eviction and displacement, while supporting vulnerable groups to settle in safe pla

A interesting GFAR blog: Learning about data for farmers and how it can help to “cross the donga” 

Read this blog summarizing highlights of a GFAR event, in which participants learnt, but also discussing passionately, about data that are needed by farmers: data that are actually available and data that are not; who is providing or is expected to provide such data; examples of data services and data-driven apps; as well as about the data that are produced by the farmers and what rights they have on these data. 

GFAR organized the event in collaboration with the Information Training and Outreach Centre for Africa (ITOCA), the Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) initiative and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA).

Akibodé Djodji Merci pour l’initiative car les startups donnent un nouveau souffle, elles sont un levier d’innovation, car elles proposent des services et poussent les acteurs à résoudre des problèmes auxquels personne n’osait s’attaquer. En effet, les meilleures idées de startups naissent de problèmes existants ou en train de s’installer. Or, des problèmes dans l’agriculture, il semble y en avoir, l’actualité africaine en témoigne… De plus, l’agriculture en Afrique doit répondre à un challenge de taille : nourrir une population mondiale en croissance, dans un contexte où les attentes sociétales et environnementales se font de plus en plus pressantes.

Using urine and ash to control crop pests and diseases

  Pests and diseases cause a substantial economic loss to crop farmers. Other than reducing yield and lowering harvest quality, pest and disease control increases production costs in terms of buying the chemicals to control them. Besides chemicals being expensive and not readily available, they also have adverse effects on the environment, humans and non-target organisms if not used properly, and as such, farmers prefer to use locally available materials (traditional methods) to mitigate pests and diseases which are cheaper, environmentally friendly, easily available and less harmful to humans and non-target organisms. As one of the traditional practice in Uganda, farmers use ash and urine to control a wide range of crop pests and diseases. This document provides a description of how different farmer apply this practice.
