From October 2010, GRM has been implementing a multi country smallholder agricultural development project covering selected areas of Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Lesotho known as the Seed and Markets Project (SAMP), funded by Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC). Emphasis of the project has been on strengthening local seed production and output markets in order to generate security of quality inputs as well as inject cash within the rural economy.

The sites include Malangeni at the Ngwempisi RDA and at the Lutheran Farmer Training Centre in Hhohho

The scope of work includes:

  • Establishment of demonstration plots, 2 per area, where the gamut of mechanized CA is showcased for different crops of cereals and legumes. The demonstration plots are being used as a field based ‘class room’ and point of learning for farmers. 
  • Drawing and implementing farmer training curriculum for the entire season.
  • Training of farmers in CA
  • Contract farming of satellite farmers
