Food Spray Manual (2016)

PAN UK began working with Integrated Pest Management expert, Robert Mensah, ten years ago to develop a food spray, using cheap and locally available materials, to enhance populations of beneficial insects in smallholder cotton fields in Africa. Working closely with Davo Vodouhe and his team at OBEPAB in Benin, Robert conducted field trials and experiments in farmer’s fields to perfect the product to help farmers grow more cotton, more profitably, without the use of expensive and harmful pesticides.

Cotton Without Highly Hazardous Pesticides – An Ethiopian Experience (2017)

Since 2013 we have been working to support cotton farmers in Southern Ethiopia to adopt safer and more sustainable methods. We now have 2000 smallholder farmers achieving average yields over 100% higher than before. An organic producers’ cooperative is selling Grade A organic cotton at a premium price and, with our technical support, it has just started supplying organic seed to farmers in the area.
