Making agricultural value chains more inclusive through technology and innovation

Reena das Nair and Namhla Landani

No wp-2020-38, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Some entry barriers in agricultural and agro-processing value chains, particularly for smallholder farmers and small/medium-sized processors, can be overcome with innovation and technology adoption. Technologies and innovation in these sectors have been both radical and incremental, ranging widely through biotechnology; production technologies; automation in sorting, grading, and packaging; and digital platforms and data-connected devices for market access.
