During the upcoming #AskAg Twitter chat, Stephanie Hanson and Michael Hudson of One Acre Fund, along with Roger Thurow of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, will answer your questions about how to help the poorest smallholder farmers in Africa. Along with chat participants, they will look at what is necessary to enable smallholder farmers who primarily grow staple food crops, with a focus on how to offer "bundled services" (farm inputs and financing, or financing and extension), as well as how to make rural distribution successful.
