U.S. Provides Grants for 20 New Farm Service Centers to Help Ethiopian Farmers

Please join Feed the Future, the United States Government’s Global Hunger & Food Security Initiative, the Ethiopian Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA) and Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA) for a grant award ceremony on December 21, 2016.

Through grants totaling 22 million birr, the United States will support 10 private entrepreneurs and 10 farmers’ cooperative unions to open 20 farm service centers (FSCs) in four regional states. The 20 new centers are in addition to six centers already opened in the Oromia region. Farm Service Centers are one-stop-shops where farmers can get advice, receive training and purchase quality, reasonably-priced, region-appropriate seeds, fertilizers and other supplies to increase production.
