September Focus Topic: Agriculture

Agriculture lies at the heart of economic life at the base of the pyramid. And with over 450 million smallholder farmers supporting about 2 billion people worldwide, initiatives and enterprises serving the sector can make an outsized impact. But like farmers themselves, they also face significant challenges, from the unpredictability of the weather, to difficulties reaching communities in remote rural areas. This series explores the innovations and enterprises that are addressing these challenges head-on.
