The partnership with an International Organisation in each country is to develop the upstream components of the value chain and to bring improvements in production and incomes to farm families. Smallholder cassava farmers supply tubers to the DADTCO processing operations. The NGO helps to organize the participating farmers to overcome supply and logistical constraints ensuring they benefit from the market opportunity presented by DADTCO. This incentive is used to increase productivity and soil fertility. They also assist farmers to gain access to improved cassava varieties, fertilizer and appropriate crop protection products. Moreover farmers are trained in smallholder mechanization and better farming practices in order to increase production levels to an extent such that more income is generated and a better livelihood is guaranteed at the household level.
