As part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation funded N2 Africa project, Wellspring are assisting with the development of a “go-to-market” strategy for the existing assets on rhizobial inoculants in African agriculture. Wellspring is evaluating the piloting of inoculant supply to smallholder farmers across 11 countries, assessing business cases for investment, potential models to assist with the inoculant supply and the role of investments in the development of supply chains. Using all available data, Wellspring is developing a clear and viable business case for investment in the inoculant supply chain, including local production versus importing, the major bottlenecks to be overcome and any technical barriers to inoculant supply (e.g. product quality, storage and transportation)
