Establishment of value addition centers for primary processing and providing market linkages would be an effective intervention. The agriculture and farming systems that the smallholder farmers practice are largely traditional that use local indigenous seeds passed on for generations which produce lower yields, thereby resulting in a not-so-profitable agricultural outcome.
