The majority of the smallholder agriculture production and profit is characterized by absolute uncertainty, which is often attributed to a lack of system-level resilience, high resource use inefficiency and low agronomic gains. The innovation in empowering farmers and agriculture extension is critical in filling the technological gaps. The demand for site-specific resilient agronomic and agroecological practices and timely advisories on crop choice, rotation, water-saving, reducing farm inputs, carbon sequestration and closing yield and nutrition gaps are needed to achieve economically viable and ecologically sustainable agriculture.
