eProd introduces: Accountability- Contract Farming

Contract Farming

Many companies need assurance that farmers will sell their produce to them. At the same time, farmers need market certainty. Contract farming offers one of the solutions to these challenges.

Yet, companies often lack a tool to manage contracting of farmers cost-effectively.

“Contract farming is about managing embedded services, not only about signing a contract. Whether you offer farmers inputs, access to finance or services, you need appropriate tools to manage these transactions”, says Jan Willem van Casteren, lead trainer of Africa Grains Online, and CEO eProd Solutions. Africa Grains Online started as an initiative of Buhler, African Milling School, and eProd Solutions to assist millers and grains traders during the pandemic. During eight modules offered by the eProd Solution’s team, the free of charge course focuses on all aspects of Contract Farming and assists the millers and traders in preparing a full Contract Farming business plan in eight weeks’ time.

With eProd it is now easy to manage contract farming. Check out our demonstration movie here. For more information or a live demo, please reach out to info@eprod-solutions.com.
