You Invest. You Create Opportunity. You Empower.
When you invest in a project sponsored by AgGrandize, you are engaging in a partnership that enables local farmers and operators to compete and provide for their local markets.
There are approximately 500 million smallholder farmers in the developing world, operating farms under 13 acres, and serve an important role in food systems. These farmers have 3 main needs: access to capital, agronomic expertise and access to better markets.
Capital: these farmers often lack the capital needed to purchase quality seed, fertilizer, and other inputs, to maximize yields and their profitability. According to the World Bank there is a $200 billion shortfall to fund the current financial needs of farmers in developing/frontier countries.
Agronomic Expertise: many times these farmers also lack expertise in the most current agronomic practices. Our team of experts works directly with the farmer to manage the crop throughout the growing season. Engagement at this level yields a higher success rate both for the farmer and the investor.
Better Markets: there is often an opportunity to take the crop to the next step in the value chain through local ag business by processing it for food or feed which can increase profits for the farmer.
