An increased crop yield helps reduce hunger by increasing the amount of food available. This not only feeds the world (Goal 2) but helps reduce poverty (Goal 1) and increases economic growth (Goal 8). With extra income and food security, farming families are able to focus on other priorities. This creates a positive ripple effect that increases the families’ ability to access to medical care (Goal 3), education (Goal 4) and advances opportunities for gender equality (Goal 5).
