INTRODUCTION

Value chains are a key framework for understanding how products move from the producers to the customers. The value chain perspective provides an important means to understand the business to business relationships, mechanisms for increasing efficiency, and ways to enable businesses to increase productivity and add value.

It provides a reference point for improvements in services and the business environment. It is a vehicle for pro-poor initiatives and for linking small businesses with the market. Value chains therefore reside at the core of high-impact and sustainable initiatives focused on improving productivity, competitiveness, entrepreneurship, and SME growth.

How effective is farmer exchange programs in relation to productivity?

Claire van der Kleij Hi Jones. From our experience at AgriProfocus we find that farmer exchange programs are very useful to learn from each other on which practices that work or not. Often you find that certain practices that are successful in one of the country are not known on the otherside of the country. Information sharing between farmers is therefore very important to introduce each other to new and good practices! We will be having a dairy exchange in March which I can keep you informed about.
