Achieving Farmer Impact through Partnerships

As Partnering for Innovation completes its third year, we're taking a moment to look at what we've achieved so far. With our 67 global partners, Partnering for Innovation has commercialized 65 new agricultural products that will benefit more than 350,000 smallholder farmers.

From improved seed varieties and better irrigation to postharvest storage and processing, the products and services that Partnering for Innovation's partners are commercializing improve farmers' income and nutrition through every step of the farming process.

With additional partnerships being developed in Nigeria, Benin, and other countries, we're confident that, together with our partners, we will continue to support strong businesses and improve smallholders' lives around the world.
