Post-Harvest Technology
In order to rise out of poverty and move beyond subsistence farming, the introduction of more advanced production technology is necessary. The use of appropriate farming technology increases agricultural yield and the value of the farmers’ crops. In recent agricultural projects, ADC has utilized low-cost technology that neither exacerbates resources nor requires large amounts of physical labor. In Lofa County in Liberia, ADC has introduced rice threshers and rice mills, cassava and peanut processors, rotary weeders, rototillers, drying slabs, and improved grain storage facilities.


Seed Multiplication

ADC has introduced NERICA rice in Liberia, a robust high-yield cross between Asian and African rice varieties. Seed banks have been established, and the most promising varieties are distributed to farmers.

Food For Work
Food-for-work programs have been used to strengthen the capacity of communities as well as increase the sustainability of development projects. ADC has established food for work programs in Liberia for needy farmers, where food distribution is tied to specific agricultural benchmarks. These programs result in the protection of seeds, the provision of nutritious food to poor families, the encouragement of farm preparation as well as community participation in agricultural training activities.
