Agricultural yields in sub-Saharan Africa are substantially lower than their potential productive capacities and the obstacles plaguing the region are significant: poor soil quality, increasing drought conditions, and the rising prevalence of crop-destroying weeds and pests. Strategies aimed at combatting these challenges and improving food security and agricultural productivity often emphasize agricultural technologies as part of the solution. “Pathways to Productivity” is a former Global Food Security Program blog that published analysis, commentary, and fact-based posts related to the role agricultural technologies might play in food security. We have selected a few of our favorite posts for you to examine here.
