Announcement: Agtube will be launched before the end of 2013

20 November 2013. Agtube will be launched before the end of 2013. This portal is where you can upload videos about agriculture for sharing with the agricultural community.  Keep checking the news section of Access Agriculture for the latest.

Access Agriculture also aims to support new productions and more local language translations. For those without internet access and to ensure the DVDs end up in the villages where farmers can organise themselves to watch the videos whenever they like, major distribution of the hard-copy DVDs is planned through a wide variety of outlets: rural radio networks, research and extension agencies, farmers’ organisations, development organisations and Chambers of Agriculture.

Here are the links to two new videos made the Malian partners:
Row planting of sesame
Enriched porridge

And the French versions:
Semis en ligne du sésame
Bouillie enrichie
