Hire services by farmers for farmers


Hire services have the potential of providing improved livelihoods to small-scale farmers the world over. These services can reduce drudgery, expand or intensify crop production, contributing to food security, reduce production, post -harvest and marketing costs and increase smallholder incomes.

The booklet is intended to raise awareness and promote hire services as a viable smallholder enterprise among policy-makers, development specialists and others involved in development programmes.
