Description

Client: BMEL/GFA

Description:

The German-Moroccan training centre contributes significantly to the modernization of the Moroccan agricultural sector, which began in 2008 with the implementation of the "Plan Maroc Vert". With the creation of the National Office of the Agricultural Council (ONCA) in 2013 and the law on the reorganisation of the agricultural consultance service in 2015, basic conditions which are crucial for the development of the sector have been established, aiming in particular to increase the contribution of the private sector service providers to agricultural advice and training.  It is within this framework that the Moroccan government has made available significant subsidies for modernisation and expansion investments targeting farms.


In this respect, the Centre of Excellence offers training on the efficient and sustainable production of cereals, potatoes, fodder plants, milk and meat. An important role is assigned to the use and mainte-nance of machines and good entrepreneurial management.

The projects aims at empowering agricultural farms and service providers to have the know-how to use new technologies and modern means of production in order to achieve a significant increase in yields and income that is economic- and ecologically sustainable.
