The Enablers

The six (6) Enabler Compacts provides support services for soil fertility management, water management, capacity building and development, advocating supportive seed technology policy, mobilizing youth into agribusiness and organizing a response to the fall army worm invasion.

The Technology Tool Kits

The principle of designing and deploying technology toolkits is established within the framework of TAAT as a mechanism to extend cohorts of proven technologies to African farmers.
