One of the main reasons farmers in poor countries get lower yields than farmers in rich countries is that they don’t have enough information about which seeds to plant or how to manage their soil. To address this problem, an organization called Digital Green worked with Google and Microsoft to create a digital platform in which local farmers teach their neighbors about best practices in their local language. This method, which has taken off in India and is being introduced in several African countries, has proven both cheaper and more effective than traditional training.
