Plants for Food Security in Production for Rwandan Farmers

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Plants for food security in production for Rwandan farmers. With majority of the banana plants diseased, majority of fruit production is currently being imported. Forestry and Agricultural Investment Management (FAIM Africa) is propagating through tissue culture healthy disease-free plants for Rwandan farmers as well as all sub-Saharan countries and the Middle East.

Production included cooking bananas Injagi and Imporogoma, as well as Fhia 17 and Fhia 25 which are bananas primarily used for beer and desert. Available for shipping to areas outside Rwanda is FAIM’s own Sugar Baby Apple Banana, a banana that produces juice so sweet will have you doubting that is from a banana at all!

Rural Women are a Strong Force in Agriculture

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

This article came to my attention today as it is International Day of Rural Women. It profiles women – who actually make up almost half of rural people who work in agriculture. What this article promotes is what FAIM is working towards here in Rwanda and we are making headway with some successes – financial assistance for African farmers both men and women. With financial assistance and clean virus free plants, farmers are able to produce larger healthy crops that actually mature and can make it to market. One step closer to Food Security.
