Agriculture in Africa

  • Numerous small scale farms, which are seriously lacking in know-how
     
  • Virtually no professional farmers
     
  • Fluctuating product quality and availability
     
  • Weak supply chain and logistics – few large scale buyers, unorganized small scale sellers
     
  • Low level of TRUST in the supply chain
     
  • Little appropriate mechanisation or storage facilities (high level of wastage)
     
  • Lack of appropriate funding because most sources are still short term  rather than medium or longer term which are more suitable for agriculture.
