Inclusive progress through partnerships and knowledge
Fertilizer terminal in Dar es Salaam: a growth initiative
In mid-September, 2015, a US$20m fertilizer terminal in the port of Dar es Salaam was officially launched and operational.
This infrastructure investment supports Tanzania’s long term strategic ambition for inclusive growth in the agricultural sector. It is coordinated through the public-private partnership SAGCOT in which Yara has played a catalytic role. The terminal is one of the first SAGCOT infrastructure investments and has the capacity to become a national/regional fertilizer distribution hub.
We intend to continue expanding our position in the region by developing systematic distribution channels. This will ensure:
- product availability
- value chain partnerships supporting both commercial and smallholder farmer development
The Last Mile Alliance is another value chain partnership implemented during the last few years. Founded in 2013 by Yara and a number of private companies, its aim is to deliver quality and reliable agriculture inputs - plus knowledge and professional advice - right to the farmer’s gate. Focus is on rural farming areas where access to inputs and knowledge are limited.
Crop clinics and farmer field schools are other examples of how we share our knowledge, helping grow competence and capacity among smallholder farmers.
