As Good as Money in the Bank: Increasing Resilience Through Improved On-Farm Storage

Secure, on-farm storage can benefit smallholder farmers by improving the market value of crops, allowing farmers to be price makers rather than price takers, improving the variety and quality of food consumed by the household, and increasing the year-round availability of food and income. The Kenya On-Farm Storage Pilot by AgResults, a multi-donor initiative, works through the private sector with incentive payments to promote on-farm storage. This webinar showcases how the pilot activity and its tailor-made impact evaluation are generating valuable information about the constraints and structural factors that influence the storage habits of smallholder farmers.
