RICA Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture

RICA students learn the principles of conservation agriculture and One Health, with an emphasis on communications, leadership, and entrepreneurship. Students gain hands-on experience in smallholder farming, while also being exposed to six different enterprise-scale agribusinesses during their course of study. They also engage closely with local farming communities through on-site extension education and through the NASHO Irrigation Cooperative to ensure research insights are informed by local needs and knowledge is transferred to benefit local communities.

RICA students learn conservation agriculture, which includes practices for protecting and enhancing soil quality, improving crop and livestock productivity and profitability, and protecting environmental quality. RICA students learn these skills in an experiential setting, which means they learn in the classroom as well as in fields around campus. RICA’s curriculum starts with a solid science and math foundation, equipping students to understand and apply emerging engineering and technological developments in innovative ways to agriculture in Rwanda. In year one, students take foundational courses and learn principles of smallholder farming. In year two, they learn through six different enterprises, from dairy to irrigated cropping systems to food processing. In year three, they complete a capstone project with partners on and off campus. Entrepreneurship and communications are also interwoven throughout RICA’s curriculum.
