Project Description
This project has three components namely; 1. Improve productivity of smallholder farmers through better tea nutrient management. This component will cover all the KTDA tea growing zones. The aim of the work is to provide KTDA with data on the nutrient deficiencies across all their tea plantations, build the internal capacity to interpret this data and improve tea nutrient management and tailored advice to farmers. 2. Improve the financial skills of smallholder tea farmers in Kenya. KTDA farmers will be trained on financial literacy. This will help them to effectively manage their farms and the income received from tea sales. 3. Biomass Fuel Strategy and Efficient Energy Use. The tea production process requires use of fuel wood which is currently purchased mainly from third party sources. In this component, KTDA will be helped to develop a strategy to manage their fuel wood needs, put in place a sustainability plan and develop a wood traceability system.
