Cultivate empowers farmers and farmer groups to understand the impact of each decision they make during the production cycle regarding costs, labor, yields, and revenues. With a set of Cultivate comparison tables, farmers can better calculate the effects on family labor and gross margin. Farmers identify which practices to develop through the use of two core components:
- AgCalendar: a streamlined calendar built around the production season to inform farmers of the decisions they need to make, the timing of those decisions, and the timeframe in which to apply new practices.
- AgCompare: a comparison tool against which farmers can analyze changes in individual or multiple production practices for all related costs against a return in yield, sales, and profit.
We rigorously monitor project activities and adaptively manage them to achieve success for our clients. We customize every project to meet the unique demands and emerging challenges of each situation. For Cultivate, we create a comprehensive evaluation that builds from the following measures:
Output: assessment with defined engagement plans
Outcome (immediate): activities implemented in each sector of society
Outcome (distant): member access to income, education, healthcare, rights
