Capacity building support

What is our objective?

Good agronomic practices are the foundation for achieving profitable and sustainable vegetable production. Through the capacity building support we will focus on transfer of knowledge so that at least 250,000 smallholder vegetable producers will be reached with key messages on:

  • Improved Varieties and Good Seed Quality
  • Nursery systems, Seedling Raising and Transplanting
  • Pest & Disease Management, responsible use of chemicals
  • Crop nutrition, Soil and Water Management

How do we work?

Wageningen Plant Research will intensively train and guide 25 professional vegetable experts. They will work with other extension staff and professionals active in providing advisory services to vegetable farmers. Jointly they will organise vegetable demonstrations and other field events for interested vegetable growers.
Crop guides, e-learning modules and technical booklets will be produced in Myanmar language. These will include recommendations on responsible fertilizer and pesticides use, spraying techniques, crop protection, cropping or nursery systems, etc.
