These are grouped into those addressing Marketing, Demand, Supply Response and Land Reform as follows:

  • Marketing of non-traditional cash products

Marketing completes the production process that began on the farm because it ensures that products reach the consumers. Thus, the agricultural production process is not complete until the product reaches the ultimate consumer. In recent times, there has been emergence of a number of small agricultural enterprises such as poultry, horticulture and others. These small enterprises’ development has been hampered by several factors, chief amongst them being in ability to penetrate the available local markets. An understanding of the barriers that prevent smallholders to participate and increase their level of participation in agricultural markets is important if they are to be developed and integrated in to the agricultural marketing system.
