Smallholder rice farmers in Tanzania are confronted with many difficulties, such as:
1)Climate change challenges like floods and drought.
2)Inefficient use of water.
3)Limited knowledge of Good Agronomic practices.
4)Farming remains subsistence, as smallholder farmers lack access to capital from financial institution to be able to adopt improved farming technologies, buy improved seeds, fertilizer, agrochemicals and cover cost of their farming operations such as plowing, transplanting, weeding, bird scaring and harvesting.
5)Limited access to timely and accurate information for better farming decisions making i.e. plot size.
