AgResults Aflasafe Pull Mechanism Pilot Project to Incentivize Adoption of aflasafe™

2018

The aflasafeTM pull mechanism incentivizes organizations with contract farming arrangements to work with smallholder maize farmers to adopt aflasafeTM while also increasing productivity. The pull mechanism builds a core group of participants to anchor the market for aflasafeTM, expanding from 2,500 farmers in Nigeria in year 1 to 35,000 farmers in year 4. It features payments for performance that incentivize ‘implementers’ to help smallholder farmers to produce maize treated with aflasafeTM. The pull mechanism also features technical assistance with the goal of increasing yields of participating farmers.
