Farm Development Plans for Smallholder Cocoa Farmers in Ghana: Final Evaluation

Satellite for Farming, or Sat4Farming, is a consortium of the Rainforest Alliance (lead institution), Touton, Grameen Foundation, University of Ghana, WaterWatch Projects (now AuxFin), and Satelligence and is funded by the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) program of the Netherlands Space Office (NSO). Sat4Farming seeks to triple yields of cocoa farms from 400 kg/ha to 1,500 kg/ha within a decade through a strong focus on supporting farmers to renovate and rehabilitate their farms. The major vehicle through which the overarching goal will be achieved is the deployment of a digital agriculture advisory tool, known as FarmGrow. This endline report outlines the findings from a mixed-methods evaluation conducted between 2018 and 2020 to assess changes in farmer practices and outcomes, to document intra-household dynamics such as women’s involvement in the project, as well as document the lessons learned and key recommendations for consideration, not only for the Sat4Farming team, but also for implementers of digital agriculture strategies.
