Open Data is a hot topic in agricultural development–so hot that G8 leaders are holding an International Conference on Open Data for Agriculture on April 29 and 30. The following day, May 1, IFPRI will share its own wealth of Open Data at "D8".

Our colleague and supporter Prabhu Pingali, Deputy Director of the Agriculture Development Division of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, delivered this seminar the other day at IFPRI.

Last month I was honored to visit Stanford as a featured speaker at their Global Food Policy and Food Security Symposium Series. I shared the bill with Prabhu Pingali, Deputy Director for Agriculture Development at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who has been critical to helping guide and advance our work at HarvestChoice.

HarvestChoice cofounders and principal investigators Stanley Wood and Philip Pardey discuss our mission, our data challenge, and four signature aspects of our innovative approach to more productive and profitable farming in Sub-Saharan Africa.
