On Our Plate: Advancing India’s Ag Development

Posted by on March 6th, 2017 | 0 Comments »

India faces significant challenges to its agriculture industry, including poor soil quality and frequent droughts outside of monsoon season.  Many of these challenges, along with the opportunities for an improved and more sustainable agriculture system, can be reviewed in GHI’s India-focused GAP Report, Global Revolutions in Agriculture.    And to improve the quality of Indian agriculture and the lives of farmers, GHI’s member company, Mosaic, established the Mosaic Villages Project in India, which has since expanded beyond to Guatemala and Africa.  To learn more about additional advances in India, check out our 2016 GAP Report (pages 50-55) and see the articles below.
