Market Information Systems Audit on the State of Livestock Market Information Systems in Africa
Patricia Mweene, Lumba
Item Usage Stats
Majority of African livestock farmers are older smallholders living in isolated rural areas and thus lack appropriate access to markets for their products and they are also deprived of agricultural market information. As they lack these, the smallholder livestock producers have no adequate information on demand and supply, what to produce and when, and therefore can be exploited by other actors in the chain and receive low prices for their agricultural produce.
