Title: Smallholders Farmers Rural Radio
The Smallholders Farmers Rural Radio tackles environmental degradation; mismanagement of natural resources, hunger and poverty by designing and broadcasting daily broadcast programs in the local Igbo Language which enables farmers acquire sustainable agricultural management skills, environmental management techniques, receive daily market information, advertise their farm products and learn critical business skills. Smallholders utilize daily broadcast information to decide what to produce, when to produce, how to produce and for whom to produce in the long term boosting their agricultural yields and household income.
