Continuous improvement and innovation

By 2050, the world’s population will exceed 9 billion people which is a projected growth of more than 30 % and amounting to an estimated 2.3 billion more people to feed. The farmers will need to produce the same amount of food over the next four decades that produced over the past 8,000 years.

Consequently, we need access to better tools and farm practices that enable us to produce more with less. People are increasingly moving away from where food is grown and are less aware of how it is grown. Climate change and increasing weather volatility will drive demand for new seed technology adapted for harsher conditions and stressed land. As a result, the need has never been greater for innovative solutions that will lead to significant improvements in our food and nutritional security, including greater investment in science and technology. Beyond improved seeds and crop protection tools, other technologies enable farmers to increase their productivity, such as modern irrigation practices, crop management products, mobile technology, fertilizer and mechanization management and software, which ASAVI, uses on its farms. A is run by ASAVI in which knowledge is shared on agriculture business management, legal knowledge, production and farming technologies which overall creates a positive interactive learning environment. Several topics are deeply discussed like soil fertility, crop selection, conserving nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus in the soil to produce more nutritional end product. ASAVI focuses the most on- FOCUS, EXPLORE, SELECT, DESIGN, ACTION, ASSESS, CREATE, REFOCUS.
