Developing high intensity fruit garden agroforestry systems for small-scale farmers of Eastern Africa



Micronutrient malnutrition concerns many food-insecure households in sub-Saharan Africa, resulting in anaemia, cretinism, and blindness on millions of people. In India, studies of the already existing intensive small-scale fruit garden agroforestry systems yielded an extended tree management knowledge and improved fruit tree varieties, among others. Making available well-adapted quality germplasm and information about tree management and fruit nutritional values, among other approaches, will most likely contribute not only to improve cash income generation, but also to increase fruit consumption levels of smallholder farmers and rural populations in the target region.


This project will be carried out in the frame of the foreseen Challenge Program: ‗High Value Crops - Fruits and Vegetables‘ currently in elaboration by a number of institutions, including ICRAF. As a part of this Challenge Program, the proposed study will contribute to increase smallholder agricultural production, livelihood opportunities, and incomes in Eastern and Southern Africa through the development of intensive fruit-based agroforestry systems.
