Today over one billion people are going hungry every day – the majority of these are smallholder farmers who rely entirely on their crops to feed their families.  Plantwise aims to help improve food security and reduce poverty by providing knowledge that helps farmers identify pests earlier so that they can control these pests before yields are significantly affected. Plantwise will deliver this knowledge in two ways – face-to-face via a network of plant clinics in the developing world to help the poorest farmers, and internationally via a comprehensive global knowledge bank.

We’ve put together 2 new videos to explain more about Plantwise, and to give a demo of the Plantwise Knowledge Bank:
