Productivity in the smallholder farming sector of Zimbabwe varies between districts but is generally described as low because of biophysical and socio, economic challenges. Biophysical challenges include unreliable rainfall patterns, low soil fertility and pest and prevalence. Socio-economic challenges include input access, poor physical infrastructure, labour shortages, credit unavailability, poor extension services and lack of access to output markets. Concerning extension, the public services are severely constraint by a lack of resources (95% of the current budget for Agriculture covers salaries). By addressing these key challenges the Extension and Training for Rural Agriculture (EXTRA) Project will achieve improved food and nutrition security among smallholder farming households and their communities. The project will deliver this by supporting women and men farmers so that they have improved farming practices, better linkages to markets and a more nutritious diet.
