About Agriculture Council of Tanzania
Foundation for Organic Agriculture Tanzania (FOATZ) is an organization that provides knowledge and services to small farmers, especially marginalized farmers who have inadequate knowledge of ecological organic farming techniques, market skills of natural/organic products, and sustainable livelihoods.
Agriculture is Tanzania’s main economic activity that employs about 77% of the total population. The change of the climatic system raises concern on how best natural resources should be utilized to sustain and increase crops and livestock production.
The majority of small scale farmers are using poor agroecological practices that degrade the environment.
- cultivating small size of farmland,
- cutting all trees,
- poor applied simple tools in preparing the land,
- practicing mono-cropping
- poor farming practices within the hills,
- overgrazing and bush-fires.
- Applying synthetic chemicals, fertilizers, and pesticides
Organic Agriculture is widely adopted and seen organic food on every table in Tanzania.
To engage and involve all stakeholders in organic agriculture, facilitate the exchange of scientific knowledge of organic food and farming systems and help practitioners disseminate, apply and implement innovation and scientific expertise consistent with the principles of organic agriculture.
FOATZ provides knowledge and services to small farmers, especially marginalized farmers who have inadequate knowledge of ecological organic farming techniques, market skills of natural/organic products, and sustainable livelihoods. Currently, we have three ongoing projects; Organic Demo Plots at Our Head Office, Organic Farmers Groups, and Organic School Garden.
