Encouraging progressive smallholders to share expertise with others makes a tangible difference by increasing yields and incomes.
In East Java, Indonesia, successful rice growers are educating other farmers in good agricultural practices and the implementation of our GROMORE™ solution. Rice growers who raise yields to 10 tonnes per hectare are invited to join the Rice Ten Tonne Club. Supported by Syngenta agronomists and government farming counselors, these lead farmers then pass on their knowledge to groups of smallholders.
So far, more than 15,000 smallholders are benefiting from modern methods of growing rice.
