Description

The benefits of small versus big farms:
· Small farmers feed over 70% of the population in developing countries.
· Small farmers’ low-input methods contribute lower levels of greenhouse gases and adapt more effectively to the rapidly changing climate.
· Modern seeds and chemical fertilizers—the new “green revolution for Africa” touted by donors and agribusiness—have done nothing to improve soil fertility
