The World Vegetable Center develops safe, efficient production methods for smallholder farmers— particularly women and youth—to grow vegetables in four different production systems:

  • Urban and peri-urban
  • Off-season
  • Intensive
  • Cereal-legume

Farm profitability begins with good quality seed and good agricultural practices throughout the crop production cycle. A value chain, market-aware approach is emphasized, ensuring farmers grow what will sell, rather than trying to sell what has been grown.
