Greater yields with reduced risks of exposure to pesticides, and in the end more money in the pocket; these are just a few of the benefits for farmers when using Spray Service Providers (SSPs) to spray their crops with pesticides. In Zambia, the PROFIT (Production, Finance and Improved Technologies) project in collaboration with CropLife Zambia introduced the concept in 2008 and more and more farmers are now making use of this service.

The objectives of the project are to take inventory of all obsolete pesticides and empty containers in the private and public sector and eventually to safeguard those that pose a hazard.
