Rwanda Food Self-Sufficient

Our highest priority is to help the Rwandan government successfully implement the adoption of conservation agriculture and become food self-sufficient in its basic staple crops by the end of 2025. 

Foundations for Farming
Introduced to Government
B2R Farms invites the Government of Rwanda to evaluate the results of FFF's conservation agriculture practices on our demo farms.
Pilot Program Launch
In partnership with the government,120 demonstration plots of maize were planted across the country during the September 2022 planting season.
Government Adopts
Conservation Agriculture
Before the September 2023 planting season, B2R Farms trained all the country’s district and sector agriculture officers and 416 champion farmers.
Thousands of Farmers
Trained Across the Country
By early 2024, sector agents and champion farmers trained over 35,000 farmers and planted over 2,000 promotion plots.
Seeing is Believing
The government's goal is to plant plots in all 14,837 Villages by the end of 2024.

The goal is for Rwanda to produce annually at least as many beans, maize and potatoes as the country consumes.

With this modern farming technique that we urge farmers to adopt, a farmer minimizes soil disturbance with no tillage of the soil, keeping a permanent soil cover with crop residues. Research has shown that this form of agriculture helps the farmland maintain nutrients and allows the soil to absorb water. We urge farmers to embrace this new farming system because it will help increase agricultural production."
