plantain in haiti

Smallholder farmers in Haiti rely on agriculture for their survival. However, they are faced with low agricultural output, poor soil, and limited agriculture diversity which results in chronic food insecurity. Due to limited knowledge about organic soil fertilization, farmers do not properly care for their crops, resulting in degradation.

That is why we are working in the Marmont community to help farmers produce more food by using their land more efficiently. Through this project, farmers will have access to good quality inputs and technical support through extension services.

This is a three-year project that will work to diversify crops, specifically plantain and sugarcane, and increase food availability while mitigating the effects of climate change. Trainings in the multiplication of plantain seedlings, the use of sugarcane in soil conservation, proper soil management and the application rates of soil amendments is  critical to increase food availability for consumption, sale and processing.

 

Project Goal
• Work alongside farmers to increase year-round food access for 200 households in Marmont, Haiti
• Establish a sustainable source of plantain seedlings locally
• Maximize the value of harvested crops by ensuring famers work efficiently

Through our partnership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, your donation will be matched 1:1 by the Canadian government.
