Feed the Future


Last month, the U.S. Government’s Feed the Future Initiative launched the Fall Armyworm Tech Prize to incentivize innovative problem-solvers to find digital tools and approaches that identify, treat, and track incidence of fall armyworm in Africa. This is a global call for localized solutions that will help smallholder farmers and other value-chain actors fight back against the fall armyworm.

Join a webinar on April 18, Wednesday, 1 pm GMT, to learn more about the Prize, better understand the problem of fall armyworm in Africa and explore the possibilities around digital solutions (the webinar will finish at 2.30pm GMT). Please see dial-in details at the end of the page.

The prize opened on March 28, 2018 and the Fall Armyworm Tech Prize team is excited about the level of engagement and interest so far. Please spread the word, and apply for the Prize by the May 14, 2018 deadline.
