Farmers on the continent need to be assisted to participate in higher value-added market chains than they can at present. Therefore, the role of African governments in this sector must be gotten more clarity to make enough changes empowering farmer’s institution to develop agriculture in Africa
To play a lead role in technology promotion, market organization and value addition. Yet majority farmer institutions in Africa are still characterized by low capacity to effectively perform their roles and to demand delivery of agricultural extension services as we have seen small farmers in Western Kenya. Many technologies based on traditional farming are underway such as push-pull method which really can help more small scale farmers.
