Beneficiairies stories : Chad

The CROPS4HD project has been running now for almost two years. It is reaching maturity. Many activities have led to important results. NUS promotion led to NUS (re)valorization in the four implementation countries. Indeed, farmer seeds are being promoted in national and international speeches and events, but they are also being promoted among the local population, potential consumers, and producers. NUS-based food products are now more accessible on the markets. And finally, as basis of this availability, farmers have (re)introduced some of these neglected crops into their fields. We went to meet some of these farmers to hear about the successes and challenges they have faced over the past two years.

This second experience sharing (2/4) present the portrait of two Chadian farmers who describe the crops they have in their fields and the changes they have seen in these crops since they introduced the use of compost.
