Through its university, research institute, and private sector consortium, AgBIT is uniquely positioned to identify available agro-technologies of high potential benefits to smallholder farmers and entrepreneurs. The technologies include those developed within consortium institutes and those developed outside including some from individual innovators. Technologies may include improved crop varieties, productive equipment or infrastructure, handling, storage, processing, etc. The technology commercialization program has been initiated to identify such technologies, facilitate technology transfer/absorption, and support commercialization. This will increase innovation and the translation of R&D outputs into commercial products that, in turn, increase smallholder agricultural productivity. AgBIT is working closely with the National Technology Business Centre (NTBC) on this program.
