General Farm Manager Africa
About the project
Many years ago, three students from this country studied at Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and decided after graduation to begin an agricultural business which would contribute to their home country. They evaluated the conditions of their region and determined that cashews would be the ideal crop given that the climate and other parameters were perfect for cashew cultivation.
The orchard has continued to perform well over the years. At this point only one of the original WUR students still works there, and the orchard employs many from the community. In addition to growing cashews, the orchard has expanded and now also does intercropping with cassava, which produces very high yields.
