Abstract

This study was undertaken in March 1996 by Plunkett Foundation, in consultation with NRI, as part of a joint project to assess the current and potential role of farmer- controlled enterprises (FCE's) in the provision of agricultural services in sub-Saharan Africa. The aim of this report is to make observations and draw experience from specific agricultural services initiatives involving some form of farmer-controlled organisation, from within a geographical zone of the Sahel which includes eastern Mali and western Burkina Faso. This report serves as a backdrop to the country studies in the Anglophone countries of Ghana, Uganda and Zimbabwe. This study is also complementary to the ODI research which focused on the Union of Cotton Producers in Mali (SYCOV).
