Due to poverty, sometimes farmers are forced to grow cash crops that demand high inputs, such as tobacco. This further marginalize families into deeper poverty as they borrow money to maintain the crop. Moreover, some of the crop’s reliance on firewood (in the case of tobacco to cure the leaves) has potential to destroy the environment.
TTI helps interested farmers diversify their agricultural investments by offering added training in crop rotation, poultry and egg production, and more. Agribusiness opportunities will help farmers maintain sustainable, successful farms.
TTI Agriculture is designed to demonstrate, pilot and train local farmers in vegetable production (horticulture) using drip irrigation—improved crop integrated agriculture and sustainable management of their resources.
TTI works with women local farmers and trains them in poultry and egg production.
