ACGG sites in Tanzania

In Tanzania, ACGG is implemented in five sub-national Zones: Central semi-arid, Eastern sub-humid, Southern highlands, Lake zone, and Southern humid zone.

The national team is led by scientists from the Tanzania Livestock Research Institute (TALIRI) and from Sokoine University of Agriculture.

The project is testing at least five strains in Tanzania:

  • Black Australorp
  • Koekoek
  • Kuroiler
  • Sasso
  • Local strains

A total of 20 districts, 80 villages and 3200 households are targeted by ACGG in Tanzania.
