Improving productivity and production of sunflower oilseeds among smallholder sunflower farmers

a value chain analysis approach, a case study of Kalambo District, Tanzania

Samenvatting

Sunflower is a one of the cash crops in Tanzania. It’s agronomic advantages are tolerant to drought, low disease vulnerability and easy to cultivate compared other oil crops. High demand for sunflower cooking oil makes for huge potential in subsector economic growth and poverty reduction. However, the performance of this subsector remains low and the benefits from the sunflower value chain have not identified. For example, edible oil production covers only 40 per cent of local demand and 60 per cent of the edible oil is imported. This study was conducted to identify limitations of production and productivity by smallholder sunflower farmers in order to recommend possible ways of improving the productivity and production which will increase the bargaining power and value of the crop in the domestic and global market.
