Growing Communities

Cultivu is taking global farming to the next level by focusing on people, connecting farmers with advisors and extension services on a massive scale. Cultivu’s digital platform, including website and mobile app, allow the community of growers to improve small farm productivity and sustainability, increase food production, and accelerate development. At the same time, Cultivu helps develop sustainable communities by networking farmers and building capabilities.

The Challenge:

Small farms produce most of the world’s food

0%
Of Calorie Production
0 Million
Small Farmers Globally

However, small farms do not always have access to the best knowledge and methods – reducing farm productivity and performance, environmental sustainability, and food quantity and quality

Advisors and farmers

Advisors, agronomists, and extension services deliver knowledge and best practices directly to farmers

Advisor In field

Advisors cannot reach sufficient farmers on a regular basis
