Togo Adopts Smart Valleys System for Rice Farming

(Togo First) - Togo has adopted the "Smart Valleys" system to boost its rice sector. This is a sustainable system for managing rice-growing lowlands. It was recently introduced to 120 farmers in Blitta, with the support of the West African Food System Resilience Program (FSRP).

The "Smart Valleys" system helps retain rainwater in fields, thus reducing flood-induced fertilizer loss while increasing yields.

Farmers introduced to the system learned low-cost techniques for better water and space management in rice fields. They also received essential equipment, including wheelbarrows, boots, ropes, cutters, decameters, and picks.

The training aligns with Togo's ambition of producing 1,115,087 tonnes of rice by 2030.
