    FarmBizAfrica has launched a marketplace for farmers to advertise their goods for sale, for free, as well as to post details of any seeds, livestock or other input they are trying to source.

    “Farmers often struggle to achieve sales thanks to their poor linkages to buyers, but in 2020, with the amount of disruption we have seen to agriculture as a result of the Covid-19 epidemic, the need for new ways to match buyers and sellers is now even greater,” said Jenny Luesby, the publisher of

    “We also receive comments, emails and social media messages every day trying to source seeds, inputs, machinery and equipment, and we know just how much people need a channel for sourcing too.”

    Related News:About FarmBiz Society is the largest news service for smallholder farmers in Africa, with traffic according to server-based analytics of over one million views a month, and for cookie-based views of over 200,000 a month, according to Google Analytics.

    Based in Kenya, the site currently reports exclusively on Kenyan farming, but it also has growing readerships in Uganda, Tanzania, Nigeria and Ghana.

    The news service will also be running selected marketplace announcements on its social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter, which together have a further 60,000 followers.
