Horticultural Chain Management for Eastern and Southern Africa: A Practical Manual

Horticultural Chain Management for Eastern and Southern Africa is a two-volume work designed to help trainers develop suitable materials to assist small farmers and producers to supply high quality horticultural produce for sale.



This Theoretical Manual takes trainers through a step by step approach of progressive learning. It provides the trainer with a platform of information that can be used to design and tailor-make courses applicable to the context in their respective countries. Each section is concisely presented in a modular format and is followed by or linked to a practical exercise. On completion of each section, participants are required to share information assimilated during a plenary discussion session. Participants must also apply the knowledge acquired through practical experiments or tasks.



Throughout the theoretical manual, references have been listed that provide additional sources of information. Trainers should consult new information to ensure that they stay up to date with the latest trends and continuously improve and adapt the training materials. Many of the web resources cited are continuously updated and represent an excellent source of basic information that can be used for tailoring courses to the needs of a target audience. Appendices have also been compiled to provide additional background for the trainer.
