Fodder and Fodder Seed Production Manual

Originally published on December 15, 2014.

This Fodder and Fodder Seed Production Manual, also known as the Zambia Fodder Manual, documents best practices that were tested, determined effective, and scaled up through the USAID/OFDA-funded Zambia Fodder Pilot. The overall objective of this manual is to provide guidance on how to incorporate fodder and fodder seed production into the farming systems of smallholder farmers. The manual will help disseminate tested approaches with organizations across Zambia and Southern Africa, specifically to organizations that plan to conduct fodder production and marketing interventions or incorporate fodder components into their agricultural interventions.
