The Sokoine National Agricultural Library (SNAL) has once again continued to provide information on how to use the agricultural information repository - Mkulima Collection
for smallholder farmers with the aim of giving them the opportunity to work in agriculture and its fields effectively with accurate information.
Almost 60 participants in agricultural training, especially vegetables got practical training in a project run by the Sokoine University of Agriculture and funded by the
Tanzania Private Agricultural Sector Support (PASS) while in their work area on house blocks, SUA Morogoro.
Librarians from the Sokoine National Agricultural Library which is at SUA provided various instructions including the benefits that a farmer will receive if he/she
conducts his/her agricultural activities with the necessary knowledge that is generally available in the Mkulima repository.
The Mkulima repository was established by SNAL as part of its mission to serve the nation in accessing a variety of accurate agricultural information for those in need.
Most of the information is in easy-to-understand language and is available in Swahili.
The aim of SNAL is to ensure that farmers in the country and abroad receive accurate and simple information in the Kiswahili language. Among the strategies
to achieve that goal is to enable farmers to access such information through their phones. Also collaborate with social media outlets as well as libraries located in
various parts of the country.
SNAL continues with this process of visting farmers through agricultural groups, cooperatives and various centers where farmers are generally present
in large numbers so it becomes easier to give them instructions at the same time.
Above are participants in agricultural production training especially vegetables who were in practical training in a project run by the Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA)
and funded by Private Agricultural Sector Support (PASS).
