On behalf of the AgResults Tanzania Dairy Productivity Project (the “Project”), the Project Manager (PM) Land O’Lakes Venture37 invites your organization to participate in up to two prize mechanisms (1) an input bundle-based prize competition (“Input Bundle Competition” or “Competition”) and/or (2) a fodder prize incentive (“Fodder Incentive” or “Incentive”) through which the Project aims to test Pay-for-Results mechanism approaches to scaling up innovative technologies, tools, and approaches to increase dairy productivity by using improved inputs. Participants of the Competition (each a “Competitor” and collectively “Competitors”) and the Incentive (each a “Producer” and collectively the “Producers”) can work in independently of each other or in conjunction with each other, since the Competition and Incentive are different prize mechanisms. The Project will take place in the coastal region of Tanzania, and specifically the regions of Dar es Salaam, Pwani, Tanga, and Morogoro (excluding Kilombero and Ulanga districts).
Land O’Lakes Venture37 is calling for applications from potential Competitors who are established entities from the private, parastatal, and non-profit sectors to participate in the project for Sales Period 4. Competitors already engaged in previous sales period are required to re-apply as well.
Land O’Lakes Venture37 is also calling for applications from primary fodder producers from the private, parastatal, and non-profit sectors to participate in a newly instated Fodder Incentive. The Fodder Incentive is solely for sales period 4 and aims to accelerate smallholder farmer’s uptake of the nutrition bundle by incentivizing supply-side production of dairy fodder. Entities interested participating in both the Incentive and the Competition are required to apply to each prize mechanism.
