Project Objective: The overriding objective of the HarvestChoice initiative is to influence and stimulate investment in crop technologies that ultimately have a measurable and cost-effective impact on the well-being of the poor and on the food-security of poor countries.
Proposed Outcomes: Deliver a series of databases, tools, analyses, and syntheses designed to improve strategic investment and policy decisions. “Bottom-line” deliverables are spatially (and socio-economically) explicit estimates of the potential welfare benefits of a range of interventions (e.g., at on-farm, market and national policy scale) aimed at improving the production and profitability of specific crops and cropping systems. These materials (maps, tables, graphs, and text) provide information of direct relevance to agricultural development investors and policymakers.
