Welcome To AATF

AATF is a not-for-profit African led organisation that provides farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) with practical technology solutions to overcome farm productivity constraints.

Founded in 2003, AATF is driven by the vision of a prosperous, resilient, food and nutrition-secure Africa, where smallholder farmers’ livelihoods are transformed through agricultural innovations.

OUR PROGRAMMES

Product Development & Deployment

This programme encompasses the upstream functions of the technology development pipeline, ranging from scouting and access to development (including trait/agroecological breeding and adaptation). It covers technology proof-of-concept, feasibility determination through cost-benefit analysis (CBA), product/variety testing, release and registration, technology demonstrations, and technical discussions.

Seed Systems Development & Product Commercialisation

This programme centres on facilitating the commercialisation and scaling-up of products developed through AATF partnership projects. It comprises three crucial components: firstly, the facilitation of efficient and cost-effective seed systems to deliver products directly to farmers. Secondly, stewardship support is provided to ensure the responsible use of these products. And finally, value chain-specific market development is undertaken to bolster access and adoption. The programme also encompasses scaling up partner engagement and ensuring last-mile delivery.

Enabling Environment

Through this programme, AATF seeks to foster the materialisation of technology development, release, and commercialisation at both country and regional levels. This is achieved through collaborative efforts with governments and relevant organisations for the enactment and implementation of clearly articulated policies, laws, regulations, guidelines, processes, and institutions. These efforts are underpinned by political goodwill and the requisite abilities and resources.
