Cultivating New Frontiers in Agriculture (CNFA)’s Farm Service Center Project (FSCP) under the GIZ Green Innovation Centres for the Agriculture and Food Sector (GIAF) Ethiopia portfolio is organizing a Grant Signing Ceremony for three competitively selected grantees who will be establishing Farm Service Centers (FSCs) in Assela, Iteya and Robe towns of Arsi Zone, Oromia region.

The ceremony will be held on Tuesday, September 20, 2016, at Goethe Institute in Addis Ababa from 2.30 PM – 4.30 PM.

During the event, the FSC model and the project grantees will be introduced and the grant agreement will be signed in the presence of senior government officials, GIZ GIAF-Ethiopia Program Manager, representatives from different NGOs, input suppliers, and other stakeholders.

Farm Service Centers (FSCs) are market-based one-stop shops that are owned and operated by private and/or cooperative entrepreneurs. These FSCs supply a range of farm inputs, implements, knowledge, and services to link smallholder farmers with new agricultural technologies, innovations and best practices to improve on-farm productivity and household income.
