3GP files for mobile use

In many countries farmers have been requesting small video files that can be played on basic mobile phone handsets. These files are now available for download from each video page on this website.

DVD compilations and translations

Any DVD has all videos in either English or French, and can contain up to 7 other languages.

In case some of the videos from a chosen DVD is already available in a desired language, then the cost for that DVD translation will be reduced.

DVD labels are adjusted for each client, and will include your logo on the back cover.
