Sustainable farming for smallholders is a challenge

Around 90% of the farms globally are small (less than two hectares in size) and cultivated by 1.5 billion of the world’s poor. They often lack secure access and rights to land, productive resources, knowledge, markets and opportunities.

Importantly, they lack the information they need to sustainably increase their yield while protecting the environment.

We’re on a mission to change that.
