A Free Toolkit on Agricultural Value-added Services (Agri VAS)

A Free Toolkit on Agricultural Value-added Services is offering a unique opportunity to address the knowledge and information gap faced by over 500 million farmers in the developing world.

With over two billion people in the world living in smallholder settlements and depending on agriculture as their main source of income, boosting agricultural productivity has never been more important. However, for smallholder farmers in the developing world, a number of barriers stand in the way.

These are lack of access to relevant market information and local and timely agronomic and weather information, continued use of inefficient farming techniques, lack of access to finance for investment in better agricultural technology and equipment and inefficient distribution, transport and storage systems. All of these challenges represent missed opportunities for farmers to generate meaningful income for their families.

The toolkit is structured into five parts covering the entire process of developing an Agri VAS, from initial scoping and market assessment to launching and marketing services:
