Please join Land O’Lakes Venture37 and Villa Crop Protection for a webinar to launch Fall Armyworm Mitigation: Learning Modules for Trainers of Smallholder Farmers in Africa. These Modules are new, freely available materials targeted to trainers and teachers of smallholder farmers who encounter the Fall Armyworm in their fields. The Modules consist of downloadable presentations, Trainer’s Guides, videos, and handout materials. The webinar will introduce the Modules, provide a view of each one, and how they may be accessed and used.
This event will feature the technical designers of the Modules led by Villa Crop Protection of South Africa through funding and support from the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA). Please join us by registering here:
About the Modules:
The teaching and learning materials in Fall Armyworm Mitigation: Learning Modules for Trainers of Smallholder Farmers in Africa are designed to facilitate the training of smallholder farmers throughout Africa on key approaches to the management of Fall Armyworm. Organized into seven Modules, the materials are intended to equip those who train or offer extension advice on crop protection, especially for FAW, to smallholder farmers. The Modules speak to the “Crop Protection Trainer” and impart essential concepts and advice that Trainers should teach to smallholders. These materials are available for free to view or download from the AgriTraining website. You will be asked to register one time to access the materials. As you review and use these materials, we encourage your feedback.
These materials were developed under a grant from the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) with funds from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The materials were developed by Land O’Lakes Venture37 and Villa Crop Protection.
