Acha is a cereal crop which is very hard to manually process. The labour and time intensiveness in processing acha has contributed to a decline in the production of this highly nutritious grain.
In 2015, Propcom Mai-karfi commenced partnering with an indigenous company, Pye Ryat, to pilot a mechanical acha processing service in Plateau state. This service is saving acha producers money and time which they could invest in other enterprises.
