TAAT FOOTPRINT

TAAT has disseminated 67,739 MT of seeds of climate adapted and high-yielding rice varieties which were planted on 1,354,780 ha and benefited 2,252,987 farmers, boosting rice production by 5,039,579 MT of paddy and 3,326,122 MT of milled rice.

  • TAAT has facilitated the production and dissemination of 21,983 tons of climate-smart maize by seed companies for nearly 879,320 ha of cultivated area.
  • Through its extensive partnership network, the TAAT has reached 2,302,585 farmers with climate-smart maize varieties who have obtained average maize yields of 2.68 t/ha.
  • TAAT has been able to catalyze the production of 2,331,111 MT of maize grain.
  • TAAT is rapidly expanding access of smallholder farmers to high yielding agricultural technologies that improve their food production, assure food security and raise rural incomes.
  • TAAT has sustained its commitment to delivering high-quality seeds, breeds and fingerlings to beneficiaries.
  • The TAAT ecosystem has supported dissemination to 19 million of 40 million smallholder farmers targeted.
  • TAAT has provided 11M farmers in 28 countries with #climate-smart seeds, fertilizers and technical support–helping African food production increase by more than 12M metric tonnes.
  • TAAT promotes access to climate resilient seeds through a Regional Food Technology Delivery Infrastructure (RTDI) made up of a partnership involving international agricultural research organizations, the NARS and NARES, NGOs, and the private sector, especially the seed companies.
  • TAAT achieved transformative impacts in terms of raising productivity, production, and farmers’ income, and attaining greater self-sufficiency through massive deployment of climate-resilient and proven wheat technologies.
  • The provision of heat-tolerant wheat seed varieties led to establishment of 317,000Ha of low-land irrigated wheat and Sudan’s national wheat production increased by 136%, up from 472,000 MT in 2014/15 to 1.15 million MT in 2019/20;
  • Sudan increased its wheat self-sufficiency from less than 20% in 2014/15 to 50% in 2020/21. The national average wheat yield increased by almost 67%, up from 2.1 t/ha in 2014/15 to 3.5 t/ha in 2019/20.
  •  
  • TAAT financed the provision of 61,000 metric tons of seeds of heat tolerant wheat varieties to farmers.
  • Following the nationwide deployment of heat-tolerant wheat varieties, irrigated-wheat cultivated area, rapidly expanded from less than 5,000 ha in 2018/19 to 187,240 ha in 2020/21, to 650,000 ha in 2021/22. Yields of wheat increased on average from 2.0 t/ha to 4 t/ha.
  • Ethiopia’s wheat production increased by an additional 1.6 million metric tonnes in 2022 and the country achieved self-sufficiency in wheat production.
  • Ethiopia is poised to export wheat for the first time in the coming wheat season.
