Project Objectives

The specific objective of the project is to increase sugar-cane production by small-holder outgrower farmers around Dwangwa through better access to irrigation, advisory services and other physical inputs. The proposed project will increase hectarage under irrigation to 2,140 ha by PY5. Furthermore, average net rainfed per ha farm income for sugarcane outgrowers will increase from current UA628 to at least UA2900 from PY2 because of irrigation.
