The practical farm advice sheets below have been developed with input from the smallholder farmers the ZDTP has been working with since 2017. 


These farm advice sheets take into account and respond to the realities of smallholder farming in Central and Copperbelt provinces. Within the ZDTP, they are used as an extension tool to support farmers to understand and adopt improved dairy practices. They have been and will continue to be updated based on feedback. Additional titles are being developed and will be uploaded once finalised. For any questions or feedback on these extension tools, please contact
