In Tanzania ProGrOv was implemented under the leadership of Sokoine University of Agriculture and in collaboration with Tanzania Organic Agriculture Movement (TOAM). The studies were focused on vegetable chains for the domestic market with specific emphasis on the tourism sector and investigated productivity aspects at farm level as well as markets and chain development. 

A summary of findings and recommendations can be found in the two policy briefs ‘Opportunities for organic vegetable and spice production in Tanzania’ and ‘Institutional Framework: status and prospects for Tanzania organic sector development’ prepared by the Tanzania team. 

The team also produced a mulching manual in Swahili on the practical application of the results of two of the studies ‘Mwongozo wa Matumizi ya Matandazo Makavu Katika Uzalishaji wa Mazao ya Nyanya na Pilipili Hoho’.
