For most smallholder farmers, the largest production cost is farm inputs. In Kenya, smallholder coffee farmers working with Sucafina Kenya (Kenyacof/Kahawa Bora) wanted to improve yields by applying inputs with more precision. Sucafina collaborated with smallholders in Kenya to create a soil sampling program that gives farmers more information about their soil. With knowledge of the specific nutrient-deficiencies in their fields, farmers can maximize input efficacy, lowering their production costs while maintaining or improving their harvest.
