AgResults Pilot Year 4 Data Compilation

This pilot project will create a niche market for aflatoxin-free maize that will deliver three critical preconditions that will enable further development of the market. Firstly, the efficacy of biocontrol will be proven “beyond the lab” as a commercially viable product. Secondly, broad-based awareness of the health impacts of aflatoxin will be stimulated amongst small-holder farmers, building momentum around the issue. Thirdly, a critical mass of certified maize will be introduced into the market. The combination of these three preconditions will “create the space and momentum” for other critical actors, such as the private sectors to act to ensure the market continues over time Successfully delivered, the AGPM pilot project will create an initial market for other actors to begin to reinforce with other necessary interventions over time.
