Description 
Improve productivity through the use of high yielding varieties and innovative technology in order to increase farmers' incomes and meet the increasing demand for corn. USAID is able to support an effective program that has a very high cost-benefit ratio and which helps farmers in a poverty-stricken part of the Philippines. Monsanto is able to build interest in its high yield seed, while at the same time taking advantage of this opportunity to fulfill its responsibilities as a good corporate citizen. USAID has influenced the design to make the intervention more environmentally friendly.
