Soya sector : with a yield of 3 tons per hectare, Togo’s expertise in this sector is attracting producers of the sub-region to learn from them

(Togo First) - With a production that increased from 24,000 tons to 35,000 tons within three years and an average yield of 3 tons per hectare, the Soya sector has good results in Togo so much that producers from neighbouring countries come to learn from the local experience.

This is the case of the delegation of Benin’s Soya producers’ union (Union Nationale des Producteurs de Soja du Bénin-UNPS) that visited Lomé on January 9, 2019. They met Togolese agronomists to learn from Togo’s expertise in terms of equipment and Soya seeds management.

 "We have come to see how our Togolese brothers produce soya, about the management mechanisms of equipment, the inputs and machines that is. We have learnt that Togo is already more advanced as far as those equipment are concerned”, one of the members of the visiting delegation explained.

For instance, for a yield of 3 tons per hectare in Togo, Benin produces a bit above 800 kg.

This seems to explain why producers in the sub-region have an interest in Togo’s production technics. Before Benin, there were Guinean and Ivorian producers who came to learn from the country’s know-how in terms of soya production.
