Farmers and Agri-food Value Chain

Farmers and the agri-food value chain (AFVC) are two of the most important parts of agriculture. Without farmers, food would never be planted and harvested, and without the agri-food value chain, it would be difficult for the food to leave the farm. To ensure that agricultural land stays healthy, it is vital that agroecological practices be implemented. Such policies would reduce land degradation, increase soil health, and protect biodiversity. The agro-ecological knowledge hub helps provide key information to farmers and those in the agri-food value chain determine best practices and how to proceed with agroecological practices on the farm.
