AKILIMO is designed, developed, and carried by and with partners who clearly understood their roles and responsibilities and provided the highest quality support.
AKILIMO advisory is developed using over 5,000 on-farm trials and over 50,000 cassava yield measurements
AKILIMO accounts for major production limiting factors using advanced data analytics to provide tailored advice.
Currently we are observing an evolution of partners' demand changing from focusing on single use case based on primary operation to agronomic packages provided by collaborative approaches.
AKILIMO is an agronomic advisory service developed for and with smallholder farmers.

Our recommendations have been validated by over 5,000 smallholder growers, and are utilised by over 200 partner organisations. We support our partners’ businesses with customised solutions to integrate AKILIMO agronomic advice, and train last-mile delivery agents.
