GFRAS in collaboration with JICA will host a 2-hour virtual introductory training on SHEP as part of the New Extensionist Learning Kit. It will take place on August 24th between 10:00 and 12:00 CET/Swiss time. SHEP is an innovative approach to agricultural extension services that is anchored on the disciplines of economics and psychology. SHEP has been effective in raising smallholder farmers’ income from horticulture as it develops both the technical and managerial capacity of farmers to practice market-oriented farming. A session not to be missed!
