Agric Project Development And Agric Business Management

Agri-Impact Consult implemented the Agri-Entrepreneurship and Innovation Development Project (AEID), a Skills Development Fund (SDF) Project of COTVET. It was aimed at strengthening and expanding Agri-Impact’s activities and enhancing productivity and profitability of producers and aggregators within the horticultural value chain.

AIC has established Agri-Impact Entrepreneurship Institute at Brekusu with the aim of the institute is creating jobs by providing agribusiness entrepreneurship and vocational skills in modern technologies, business models and agricultural project management. The institute works closely with the Agricultural Training Colleges, Farm Institutes and Universities to provide internship, incubation, applied research and transfer of technologies to the students of these institutions. Agri-Impact has been approved by COTVET as a TVET Provider and is currently, in the process of running certificate programs for JHS, SHS and others who will want to further their education in vocational and entrepreneurship skills


The concept of every project is to have financial or any other resources invested into a plan or program so as to reap returns (profits) at the stipulated end of the program. This lends it to the logic of financial planning and implementation. This way, outflows and inflows are effectively monitored and analyzed. The value of services and products are established using valuation analysis Agricultural projects like any other project considers these factors before moving towards implementation:

• That the proposed project has a well definition sequence of activities or steps

• That the proposed project is quantifiable or measurable

• That the proposed project has a specific time frame

• That the proposed project will be effected within a specified geographic confinement

• That the proposed project has a specified clientele

Of course, all these are relevant towards having a steady-quality project plan and implementation but the steps to planning any Agricultural project are sequence and thorough. These steps start with project definition, identification, formulation, feasibility, selection, implementation and ex-post evaluation. However, it can be singled out that the feasibility stage is one of the most important steps during the cycle. These feasibilities have to be considered before rolling out any other agenda in any agricultural project;

• Management feasibility

• Organizational feasibility

• Financial feasibility

• Technical feasibility

• Institutional feasibility

• Commercial feasibility

• Economic feasibility

Consequentially, once all these factors have been addressed, implemented and evaluated, the project has to be managed and sustained. The management of Agricultural projects has been a difficult one. It in summary has considered how to manage the scarce resources effectively and efficiently to generate the most produce recuperable. The uncertainty and the high risk factor of Agricultural projects have made the topic, Agricultural project management, nebulous. Farm managers have therefore based on precedent and antecedent knowledge, experiences, reports and recommendations in the day-to-day management of their farms. Farm managers have as of then tried to simply summarize farm management through directing, organizing, staffing, monitoring and evaluating Agricultural projects with the option of rendering remedies to the observed flaws of the cultivation processes. A good farm manager is the one who can effectively and efficiently manage the scare resources available to yield the most produce possible.
