For a small-scale farmer in the developing world, a healthy crop can be the difference between a life of prosperity and a life in poverty. But better harvests can only result from strong agricultural practices and effective farming tools and innovations.
Join CropLife International for From Poverty to Prosperity: How Agricultural Technologies Improve Farmer Livelihoods. This panel discussion will feature small-scale farmers who will share their experiences using improved crops and agricultural innovations to increase yields and economic opportunity. They will be joined by members of the development community who work tirelessly to educate farmers on best practices and deliver new technologies that improve outcomes.
