The Future Agro Challenge is more than a chance to take part in a global championship. It aims to create an entrepreneurial culture that benefits all stakeholders and allows them to pursue their own goals.
Farmer entrepreneurs operate in a complex and dynamic environment. They are part of a larger collection of people including other farmers, suppliers, traders, transporters, processors and many others. Each of these has a role to play in producing products and moving them through to the market – through the value chain. Each one needs to be an entrepreneur.
Entrepreneurs are also innovators. They always look for better and more efficient and profitable ways to do things. Being innovative is an important quality for a farmer-entrepreneur, especially when the business faces strong competition or operates in a rapidly changing environment
FAC Ed is a curriculum based approach to extension aimed at building farmers and agro stakeholders’ entrepreneurial capacity. Learning occurs through a combination of training and practice. Talks and seminars, problem-solving techniques and written information are all useful ways to reinforce learning.
