Research is one of ASNAPPs’ strengths, and as we are partnered with 15 tertiary and research institutions both regionally and abroad, we have direct access to the latest findings and innovations. ASNAPP performs in house research for its own programs and contracted research for external organisations. In house research is market driven, keeping an eye on current product and market trends, and anticipating future market demands. This benefits resource-limited farmers, keeping them on top of the pack in both the field and the market place.
