3 March 2015 – The CABI-led Plantwise programme has been named as a finalist for the Olam Innovation in Food Security Award. This award “aims to recognize an outstanding innovation for its potential impact on the availability, affordability, accessibility or adequacy of food, as well as to support its further development.”
As a programme now working in 34 countries, this is also a recognition of the efforts of all the Plantwise supporters and partners – over 168 worldwide – who make this innovation approach a reality in policy and practice. Together, the programme has reached over 2 million farmers with the timely plant health information they need to lose less, and feed more – and this is only the beginning.
The final award winner will be announced on 16 March. Read the full Plantwise story published on Farming First.
