Research programs from the Tanzania Agricultural Research Institute (TARI) showcased their best technologies in farmers’ fairs as part of the popular Nane Nane Agricultural Expo at various locations in Tanzania. This year’s exhibition theme translated to “Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries for National Economic Development”.

TARI is one of the partners of the AVISA project. The Sorghum and Millets research program, with support from AVISA, participated in the exhibitions at many show grounds across Tanzania in the Lake, Eastern and Central Zones. The team showcased demonstration plots for improved varieties and best agronomic practices such as spacing, fertilizer application, and pest and disease control. They also demonstrated intercropping of sorghum and legumes (e.g. sorghum and pigeonpea) for soil fertility improvement as well as dry samples and new value-added products from sorghum and millets.

The Groundnut team showcased several varieties of groundnuts viz. Naliendele, Mangaka, Nachingwea, Mnanje, and Masasi. Dr Jozeph Nzunda, National Coordinator of Oil Seed Research Program, noted that there was a need to increase production of oilseeds, seeing that the country imports 65% of edible oil. “Oil extraction from groundnuts is still a challenge in terms of inadequate facilities and machinery in Tanzania,” he said.

The team members got technical experts to explain groundnut technologies, while reaching participants through poster and product displays, training sessions, leaflet distribution and so on.

TARI Ilonga Centre earned kudos for well-presented value-added products and outstanding demonstrations, particularly those involving sorghum.

The expo was held during 31 July – 10 Aug 2019.
