Smallholder farms account for one-third of the global food supply. However, smallholder farmers face many challenges that result in low productivity, unsustainable practices and low income. Unable to earn sufficiently from agriculture, many farmers stop investing in their farms, decrease production, or leave farming altogether to find other forms of work. This presents significant risks to supply. It is thus in the interest of all stakeholders to provide support to smallholder farmers to build a more resilient food supply chain.
Grow Asia's objective is to help smallholder farmers in ASEAN achieve greater prosperity and environmental sustainability. One way to do this is by driving the adoption of digital tools.
The Grow Asia Digital Learning Series brings together corporate leaders, AgriTech startups and ecosystem enablers to learn more about emerging technologies, as well as to uncover opportunities for scalable, impactful digital solutions that could be adopted by smallholder farmers.
A series of 6 events throughout the year covering topics such as Remote Sensing, Supply Chain Intelligence, Digital Payments, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Drones and Internet-of-Things (IoT).
