Lake Basin Agrotech is a social enterprise established in 2017 to provide appropriate technologies for improved agricultural productivity to enhance food security in Africa.LBA is founded on the premise that Agriculture contributes to 25 percent of the country’s gross domestic product, 65 percent of total national exports, 18 percent of formal and 70 percent of informal employment and about 70 percent of the rural population depends on the sector for their livelihoods.Despite this importance, agricultural productivity has remained largely stagnant. Besides, 30 to 40 percent of agricultural produce is lost owing to poor post-harvest handling, storage and processing methods.

Therefore, there is high potential for lateral expansion of the sector across the value chain. Studies reveal that while the current level of mechanization is very low, it has the potential to revolutionize agriculture both in terms of quantity and quality of products grown and processed.Mechanization will reduce the drudgery associated with traditional farming methods and attract the youth towards agriculture. Agricultural mechanization contributes to increased land productivity, reduces cost of production, and enhances timely preparation of land and employment of youth


  • To foster research and development of appropriate,affordable,efficient and durable agro-based technologies.

  • To set up a one stop agricultural hub and align appropriate technologies to production of healthier, high value and resilient crops by establishing model farms to demonstrate impact and promote scale up.

  • To promote enterprise development amongst the youth and women through provision of agricultural mechanization services, sales of farm produce, value addition thereby increasing household incomes

  • Agrotech Innovations:-Partnering with universities and colleges to link academic research to provision of appropriate solutions to agricultural mechanization challenges.Agrotech Innovations Award has been set to stimulate creativity amongst the students to develop appropriate technologies that meet the needs of small holder farmers.
  • Agricultural Modeling: Set up demo farms with neglected but high value crops for the purposes of testing of appropriate technologies and demonstrating good agronomic practices to small holder farmers for adoption and scale up to improve their livelihoods and wellbeing.
  • Training and Capacity Building:-Equipping small holder farmers with agronomic skills for improved productivity, enterprenuership and business development skills for sustainability.


LBA Community Based Organization was established and registered in 2018 to promote livelihood development of small holder farmers through provision extension/agronomic support to enhance food production. It also offers farm inputs at subsidized rates to the farmers.
