  • FtF IAM Partner Home Harvest has continued with demand creation for its soybean inoculant in the Lango and Karamoja subregion through set up of demonstration gardens, which are learning sites for smallholder farmers to gain skills and knowledge on soybean seed rate application and seed treatment. Home Harvest set up 4 demonstration sites (2 in Abim and 2 in Lira), which enabled them to train 115 farmers (77 women).  Home Harvest has also continued with demand activation for their Top Harvest Vegetable products using the same model for setting up of demonstration gardens. Home Harvest has established 3 vegetable sites in Lira and 11 sites in Abim (Karamoja) where they trained 325 Smallholder farmers (194 women)  in basic agronomic skills and nursery management.
  • Oasis Agribusiness a partner engaged in last mile distribution of inputs in Lango and Karamoja is continuing to market inputs to farmers. Due to delays in rain that affected demand for cereal and pulses seeds, Oasis has focused on marketing of vegetable seeds that are short maturing and has developed partnerships with vegetable seed suppliers such as Home Harvest, Top Seeds and Syova. Oasis has also signed an agreement with Brac seeds that allows Oasis to access seeds on credit and pay after a week. Continuing its agriculture insurance trials that Oasis engaged with Agro-Insurance consortium on in 2021, 28 farmers (of 38 insured) were compensated 400,000 for losses of soya beans and 300,000 for losses on Sunflower; this season30 new farmers have enrolled for insurance.
