Partnerships for Sustainable Agriculture

Agriculture’s far-reaching impacts make it equally crucial to widen our view and gain new insights by entering multidisciplinary partnerships across agricultural value chains. Partnership is essential if we are to successfully drive advances in sustainable agriculture. Together, we can help farmers grow healthy, affordable, high-quality food safely and protect the land that we all hold in trust for future generations.

We are a team of dedicated people who care about the future of farming. We apply our knowledge and passion to help farmers find the right balance to achieve better yield.

What is our approach?

Agricultural transformation requires collaboration across the entire food value chain, engaging all stakeholders from industry players to academia, NGOs and civil society to name a few. Farmers, suppliers, agronomists and other experts need to join forces to develop the farming methods of the future for farmers around the world to continue to make an adequate income, protect the land, and provide the world with abundant, healthy, and affordable food. This complex balance can only be achieved through more public and industry investment in agricultural research, dialogue, and the responsible, thoughtful behavior of everyone involved.
