The goal of this project is to assist farmers in obtaining increased and stable crop yields that allow them to sustainably generate more income through marketing of their produce. The project is screening and evaluating chemical and biological commercial products with an aim of scaling up these products through partnerships with private companies. This effort hopes to increase crop yield by 30% and directly empower about 175,500 households in targeted agroecological zones in Kenya, Ethiopia, Niger and Nigeria.
