INTSORMIL Quarterly Report, April 1, 2008 – June 30, 2008
This project is designed to move sorghum and millet production technologies onto farmers’ fields, link farmers’ organizations to food and feed processors and to commercialize processing technologies so as to enhance markets. To achieve this we propose to improve the supply chain from the farm level to the consumer. The program emphasis in the north will be on the development and transfer of décrue sorghum, and motor pump (irrigated) and rainfed sorghum and millet technology, while in the south the transfer of rain fed sorghum and millet technology, already begun in the previous three years of the Production-Marketing Project, will be accelerated.
This is the final version of the work plan. The initial version has been modified and amplified as based on recent site visits of the US scientists in which they further developed the work plan in collaboration with Mali scientists and discussions with the USAID Mission. In addition, the three lead US scientists and the INTSORMIL Management Entity met in Kansas City, MO December 11, 2007 to develop a cohesive integrated plan based on their visits to Mali. This workplan is herein described.
