We focus on supporting smallholder farmers and improving their crop yields, tackling pests and diseases and finding alternatives to pesticides.
By promoting integrated solutions, we improve access to better seeds and planting materials; encourage efficient and effective use of mineral fertilizer and organic inputs, combined with good agricultural practices.
We introduce new crop production technologies, provide training and build local and national capacity. We also improve access to knowledge and information to support crop management to raise crop productivity. For instance, we support the improvement of soil and seed health leading to healthy plants and a good yield, affecting food security, income and livelihoods.
