Holistic, farmer-centric support

Smallholder farmer support 

OCP AFRICA is working to bring together partners throughout the value chain to provide the full range of support farmers 
need to thrive, including skills training and free soil testing in some countries, and access to financing, insurance and 
markets.

One example is our School Lab program. School Lab is a mobile soil laboratory that travels to meet farmers where they are, helps them test their soil, then makes fertilizer application recommendations for their soil and crop mix for free. School Lab has already helped 160,000 farmers across Kenya, Nigeria, Togo, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Tanzania and Côte d’Ivoire, and we hope to reach 500,000 within three years. 

Another example is Agribooster, a unique initiative for food crops that provides farmers with support for every aspect of the agricultural  value chain. First launched as a pilot in Côte d’Ivoire, Agribooster connects farmers to financing and insurance, works with local extension agents to train them on proper fertilizer use, collaborates with other providers to ensure they have the right fertilizer and other inputs, and in some cases, buys their harvest at a pre-agreed price.
