Scaling-up improved sesame technologies

Ever since the rainy season started (June 2014), sesame farmers in northwest Ethiopia have been working hard in their fields to increase their income by getting higher yields. In their endeavors to increase their yield and improve the quality of their sesame, farmers are not alone. The sesame Business Network (SBN) Support Programme, in collaboration with Gondar/Humera Agricultural Research Centers and woreda Offices of Agricultures, have been supporting farmers by doing scaling up of improved sesame technologies in 916 demonstration plots in northwest Ethiopia. Among the major activities are signing collaboration agreements, training of trainers, distribution of the sesame production guide and demonstrations of improved sesame production technologies.(Details of these activities are discussed thoroughly in SBN fourth newsletter, which is available in our resource page/newsletter. Pictures that depict the progress of some demo plots are also available in SBN facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SBNEthiopia)
