Welcome to Grassroots Africa


Grassroots Africa is an advisory service for farmers in Africa, initially being piloted in East Africa.  It aims to deliver answers to everyday questions from farmers: My tomatoes have blight, how do I cure it? How do I preserve my seeds for the next season? How do I prevent rats from eating my plants?

Forums and FAQs

Farmers or their intermediaries can raise questions and issues on the Farmer Questions forum.  Or look at the list of 'Frequently Asked Questions' (FAQs), which give answers to some of the most common questions we receive.
