Tecnologia e Consultoria Agro-Pecuária
Partnership period: August 2016 – July 2018
ACHIEVEMENTS: By establishing three new farmer houses, Tecnologia e Consultoria Agro-Pecuária (TECAP) will reach 18,750 farmers with improved inputs and access to mechanization services and will generate at least $2.8 million in sales of agricultural inputs and mechanization services.
PURPOSE: Strengthen the agricultural market’s weak agro inputs distribution network to increase farmers’ access to improved seed, fertilizers, pest management products, and equipment.
APPROACH: TECAP is scaling up its network of one-stop agriculture service centers, called farmer houses, from a single location in Maputo to locations in Manica, Nampula, and Tete as part of the program partnership. TECAP plans to further expand the distribution of inputs through a network of 50 agrodealers, 20 franchisees, and 250 agriculture development agents.
