Welcome to Farm Radio Resource Pack 104! The Pack contains a wide variety of topics,
designed to appeal to a wide range of broadcasters in many parts of Africa. These topics include the value chain for chickens and cowpea, using insects as chicken and fish feed, the benefits of using high quality rice seed in northern Ghana, preventing HIV and AIDS in people with disabilities, the benefits of owning and caring for donkeys, and best practices for producing Irish potatoes—plus a feature on a farmer who makes and uses his own neem biopesticide!
The backgrounders in this Pack provide key information on growing the Ethiopian grain called teff, and on maize production.
We are also pleased to present Broadcaster how-to (BH2) documents on two critical subjects. The first is the F.A.I.R. Journalism standards for farmer programs. We also present a BH2 which details the responsibilities and activities of a farmer radio program producer.
Lastly there is a Broadcaster how-to document which focuses on how to conduct effective panel discussions.
Welcome to Farm Radio Resource Pack 103, our first Pack of 2016! The Pack is entitled: Growing cowpea. Three of its 13 items focus on growing this versatile crop. As well as an issue pack on the topic, we offer two dramas on managing pests in cowpea, a key practice in successfully growing the crop.
The Pack also contains five items on other farming topics. The first looks at how to manage fowl pox, a major disease of chickens.
Welcome to Farm Radio Resource Pack 102! The Pack is entitled: Raising guinea fowl. Four of its ten items focus on raising these birds which are not only nutritious, but can bring in a tidy income.
The Pack also contains four items on other farming topics. Finally, this Pack features two broadcaster-how-to documents. One addresses a really important issue: how to operate an effective phone-in program.
Welcome to Farm Radio Resource Pack 101! The Pack is entitled: Getting and using audience feedback and evaluating radio programs. Four of its eleven items are broadcaster-info-docs which present various aspects of these two related issues. The Pack also contains seven items on farming topics.
