Tanzania: Government presents new strategy to bolster organic cultivation
The government of Tanzania has come up with a strategy to uplift performance of organic agriculture and production of organic foods across the country. The plan, named ‘National Ecological Organic Agriculture Strategy’, will be officially launched in June.
The eight-years initiative being coordinated by the Ministry of Agriculture focuses on awareness creation over organic agriculture among local farmers and relevant stakeholders, with an eye to heighten production and productivity, as well as market for organic produce in the country.
Among others, the robust strategy also seeks to ensure the country promotes both, conventional and organic farming in order to give the public a useful option to opt, whether to consume foods from organic farming or from conventional farming systems.
