SDU role

CNT has been instrumental in addressing key rice production barriers faced by smallholder farmers in Senegal for over a decade. Despite adverse climatic conditions and increased competition, CNT is aiming to maintain and, ultimately, increase its production capacity. To help achieve this, the SDU is supporting the scale-up of technical and input outreach to more than 8,000 smallholder farmers. These activities include training in seed production techniques, implement demonstration plots and improve IT software support to facilitate the management and implementation of CNT’s planned expansion.
