How it works


Our PlantwisePlus factsheets are written by partners in PlantwisePlus countries specifically for the needs of farmers. They provide a quick outline of how to recognise a crop problem, background information, and step-by-step instructions on how to manage the issue at hand. Factsheets may go into detail about one management technique or may list several practices. Every factsheet is supported by images to help you visualise the problems and solutions. 

Every factsheet is reviewed by a local farmer in the countries where they are written. This ensures the information is easy to understand and practical to use. They are also validated by technical reviewers to check that the recommendations are safe and follow approved scientific principles. 

We work with countries to provide sound advice to farmers, and now this advice is available in your factsheet library wherever you go. 

The content included in the app can also be found on the PlantwisePlus Knowledge Bank.
