Most farmer groups do not communicate and network with each other and missing out on important information Some farmers alienate themselves from government or organization supported projects, therefore dont take ownership Some farmers dont put much effort into practicing what they have being trained on Some farmer groups dont seek best practices from other groups, thereby limiting their skill and opportunities Average yield is between 5-10 tons/ha, and annual production of between 10 to 15,000 tons, which is far below the desired 30 to 50 tons/ha
