Increasing Farmer Skills and Income

Small plots have big potential. Farmers can get more income with less land when growing vegetables. Using demonstration plots, on-farm instruction, and digital approaches, we train smallholder farmers in effective agronomic techniques and production practices for more successful crops.

Farming is part of a wider market ecosystem. Increasing sustainable vegetable production not only benefits farmers but expands the agricultural-input sector, enhances vegetable markets, and provides consumers with nutritious food.

Promoting Women and Youth Entrepreneurship

In many countries, farming remains a middle-aged and male-dominated business. We identify the culture-specific barriers to entry for women and youth in farming and build solutions to engage a diversity of farmers.
