Semi-annual reports: SANREM CRSP year 3 marketing Indonesia
Agriculture is the most common activity practiced by rural farmers. Lack of market information, remote location and poor accessibility to production resources are common problems faced by the farmers. The marketing activities over the past six months focused to address the limitation of VAF's farmers on market information. As a first stage, market surveys were conducted to identify market opportunities for selected VAFs. It is important for farmers to know for which product there is a demand, which quantities and qualities are in demand, when and where there is a demand and at what price.
