Collective distance training on “Crop Protection” addressed to producers/supervisors

In April 2022, COLEACP has improved two new training programs on “Crop Protection” to help workers in charge of crop protection decision making and the implementation of functional pest and disease monitoring programmes to make well-considered decisions and adopt good practices.

Participants are invited to join the training session entitled “Crop Protection & Strategy” to be able to make the appropriate crop protection decisions considering thresholds, feasibility, registered products and production system. Afterwards, participants will have the opportunity to attend the training session entitled “Crop Protection & Execution” to adopt the best practices for pesticide application to reduce risks to the applicator.

Both training sessions are very practical with case studies based on the participants’ experiences.

This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union, and by the NExT Kenya (New Export Trade) programme, established in collaboration with the EU Delegation in Nairobi and Kenyan stakeholders.
