Welcome to Farm Radio Resource Pack 98! The Pack is entitled: Groundnuts: The post-harvest value chain. Four of the six items offer information about post-harvest activities in groundnut production, including drying, storage, processing and marketing. Two items are entertaining dramas, offering a side of humour along with tasty information! We hope your audience will “eat them up”!
Welcome to Farm Radio Resource Pack 97! The Pack is entitled: Growing groundnuts. While most of the items talk about farming practices for groundnuts, we also feature a four-part drama that touches on processing and marketing. The Pack focuses on growing groundnuts in Malawi, but the information on growing groundnuts will be useful – with appropriate local adaptation – for all groundnut-growing areas of Africa.
This series of short radio dramas on cassava was originally produced for the Farmer Voice Radio initiative by Farm Radio International. It was developed in Tanzania, together with successful cassava farmers, cassava experts (researchers), and radio drama writers and specialists. As such, the storyline was created with a Tanzanian audience in mind. However, it should be suitable for other parts of East Africa, and, with some cultural adaptation, be relevant in other regions of Africa as well.
Farm Radio Resource Pack 95 offers some nuts-and-bolts guidance for farm broadcasters who wish to better tailor their programming to their listeners’ needs. This guidance is offered through nine Broadcaster info docs. These pieces are not, like typical Farm Radio International scripts, designed to be adapted for local broadcast, or to act as models of farmer radio broadcasts. Rather, they are guidance documents that speak directly to farm broadcasters.
We offer you a total of 15 brand new scripts and two issue packs in this package. It has two themes – first, the Participatory Radio Campaigns (PRCs) developed through Farm Radio International’s African Farm Radio Research Initiative (AFRRI), and second, agricultural co-operatives.
