  1. from my experience,what often lack our farmers is not capital but strategy.for example,sunflower takes three months from planting to harvesting.its lowest yield is 4 tonnes per hectare .the four tonnes per hectare can be sold for 500.000 cfa withen three months.but if the farmer has a pressing machine,they will make two times and a half this amount from oil and waste matter for fish and animal farming.compare this to planting coffee ,cocoa or palm nuts and waiting for four years to start the first harvest.and you understand what i mean.
