Nearly 1 billion people go hungry every day; but with a little help they can protect their crops and feed their families
In recognition of the policy support for this innovative new approach to food security, Plantwise takes home an NEF Innovation Award at the Innovisions 2013 event in London. Click here to read the full story.
View the recent external evaluation from the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC) to find out why Plantwise is a "highly relevant, effective, efficient, well managed program."
Plantwise is a global programme, led by CABI, to improve food security and improve rural livelihoods by reducing crop losses.
By delivering actionable knowledge:
Plantwise is helping countries establish community-based plant clinics which deliver practical advice to farmers when their crops have a problem.
We are helping to join up the research community and the farmers, by translating the researchers’ knowledge into practical, accessible advice and feeding back information from farmers into a central knowledge bank.
We are bringing together the best of the knowledge in the plant health field, including local pest distribution data, and making it available from a central resource.
We have already helped establish over 413 plant clinics in 31 countries. These clinics have helped over 280,000 smallholder farmers and their families.
