Technology Innovations Management Practices

The ASRAECA technologies, innovations and management practices (TIMPs) is an output of a collaborative effort that brings together farmers, scientists, and other partners in the East and Central Africa (ECA). The aim is to generate, share and promote knowledge and innovations to solve common problems in agriculture in the ECA member countries and contribute to productivity and growth of the sector. ASARECA’s partners who contribute to these TIMPs mainly include: farmers, national, regional and international research institutions; extension, and training organizations; public and private sector actors; Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and development agencies.  These TIMPs have been generated over the ASARECA operational plan 1 (OP1) period between 2008-2013; which was drawn from its strategic priorities.

Ray of hope looms over Rwanda, Burundi wheat farms

A ray of hope is looming over farms of wheat growers in Rwanda and Burundi nearly two years since the launch of a project intended to secure wheat-based livelihoods. The project initiated by ASARECA and the CGIAR research program on Wheat (WHEAT), led by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) has since promoted smallholder wheat value chains. Dr. Brian Isabirye of ASARECA, the in charge of the project, says it was designed to improve the productivity and competitiveness of smallholder wheat production systems.

ASARECA, IFPRI in joint bid to map, track uptake of technologies

ASARECA and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) are undertaking a joint initiative to explore innovative, spatial and cost-effective data collection methods to monitor the adoption and diffusion of agricultural technologies. 

Simply put, the project: “Monitoring the Geospatial Diffusion of Agricultural Technologies”, is expected to generate data, knowledge and tools to help understand where and how far the agricultural technologies generated over time have been adopted by smallholder farmers and diffused over time and space.  Read more about ASARECA, IFPRI in joint bid to map, track uptake of technologies
