Agroforestry Agent Inspects Contract Farmer's Land

Follow-ups and Teaching of New Contract Farmers

  • Safeena Kassoo
  • Oct 10, 2016

Agroforestry agents are a critical part of Better Globe Forestry Foundation’s operations, and have been integrated in our structure since last year. The employment of these agents and their work and responsibilities in the Seven Forks area falls in line with our vision of poverty eradication, as they are responsible for recruiting new farmers and organizing them into groups. Among their other principal tasks are providing technical advice and follow up with contract farmers. Their meetings with contract farmers  are intense and cover the work that has been done and whatever needs to be done to guarantee the survival of the trees.

There are currently 12 agroforestry agents working for Better Globe Forestry Foundation. Our goal is to convince 2,000 farmers to become contract farmers by the end of the year. Agroforestry agents are an important factor in the success of the program.
