Farmer Production Clusters (FPC)
Overview of the Farmer Production Clusters (FPC)
Within the ACC, farm scale is achieved by clustering farmers in the Farmer Production Clusters (FPC) project, where 30-200 farmers group together on adjacent land to farm as one. These groups of farmers (FPC farmers) are required to adopt the latest full-package farm recommendations, including use of improved seeds, fertilizer application, and other farming best-practices. Over time, it is expected that FPC farmers will move towards becoming established as commercial companies.
