TAAT WHEAT COMPACT

Wheat is one of the most important agricultural commodities in Sudan for food security in terms of quantity and calories consumed. Currently, wheat in Sudan is grown on approximately 201,000 ha under irrigation with an average productivity of 2.5 t/ha. The annual wheat production stands at 513,000 MT, representing about 22 % of the total national requirement of 2 million MT. Consequently, the ever-widening gap between local production and consumption has created a huge shortfall that is primarily met by imports, which drains the Sudan economy over 500 million dollars per year in foreign exchange.

TAAT SORGHUM/MILLET COMPACT

Crop Residues (CRs) from coarse cereals such as sorghum and pearl millet grown on the cropland as food and feed are immensely important to livestock feeding. However, animals selectively eat leafy parts of these two crops leaving thick stems in abundance and yet not utilized properly which poses challenge in feeding during the dry season.

TAAT SMALL LIVESTOCK COMPACT

Within the first six months of implementation, the TAAT small livestock compact has undertaken public private partnership projects on livestock technology scaling activities in Ethiopia, Mali and Nigeria that has benefited nearly 250,000 livestock farmers.

TAAT ORANGE FLESH SWEET POTATO COMPACT

The TAAT OFSP Compact is led by the International Potato Center (CIP) with partnerships in eight countries located in Central, East, Southern and West Africa. The compact is leading efforts at strengthening sector-wide human and institutional capacity to integrate OFSP into African Food Systems and Markets for increased incomes.

TAAT MAIZE COMPACT

Maize is one of the most important staple crops in Africa on which an estimated 300 million people depend. However, several challenges severely undermine maize production, including drought, diseases and insect pests such as the Fall Army Worm (FAW).
Fortunately, many proven technologies such as climate smart maize technologies, pest and disease tolerant varieties among others, have been developed by researchers worldwide to address some of these challenges.

TAAT HIGH IRON BEANS COMPACT

The High Iron Beans Compact is led by the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) through partnerships in eight countries located in upland areas of Central, East and Southern Africa where bean production offers greatest opportunity. The bean technology toolkits are driven by the development of biofortified bean varieties, rich in iron, zinc, and lines increasingly resistant to root disease. They include both bush and climbing varieties.

TAAT CASSAVA COMPACT

The Cassava Compact is led by IITA with partnerships in 15 countries of Central, East, Southern and West Africa. A staple to about 350 million people in sub Saharan Africa, cassava had been declared in 2003 by African Heads of State as a poverty fighter. However, the crop is yet to prove its mettle as millions of growers in sub Saharan Africa who depend on the crop for their livelihoods are still below the poverty line.

TAAT AQUACULTURE COMPACT

The Aquaculture compact of the Technologies for African Agriculture Transformation (TAAT) project is led by partners in focal (DR Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Zambia) and satellite (Burundi, Cameroon, Cote D’Ivoire, Republic of Benin and Tanzania) countries.
