Namibian Organic Production Manual
For Livestock, Horticulture and Crops
Organic Agriculture is an acknowledged sustainable method using natural resources, and therefore the development of the Namibian Organic Production Manuals was commissioned and financed by the GIZ Support to Land Reform Programme, on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany and in close cooperation with the Namibian Organic Association (NOA).
NOA thanks german cooperation (Deutsche Zusammenarbeit) and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH for their invaluable support in producing this publication.

Frequently asked questions
The African Organic Agriculture Training Manual project, which was started in October 2009 by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (www.fibl.org ) aims at delivering and enabling best farming practices to farmers, farmer groups, extension workers and trainers.
The appropriate training materials will help extension workers to better address and communicate with small-holder farmers, and as a result encourage application of new technologies for sustainable agriculture. This training manual is a key ingredient in the dissemination of sustainable agriculture best practices.
