Our Solution: Better Corn

More Nutrients, Higher Yields

Decades have been spent trying to get rural families to replace corn with more nutritious foods. But rural families continue to eat corn because it is the cheapest food to buy, the easiest crop to grow, and the foundation of thousands of years of culture.

So how do we solve malnutrition while helping families? 

Semilla Nueva brings seeds from some of the world’s best scientists at organizations like CIMMYT and Harvest Plus, to the farming communities of Guatemala.

These scientists have bred together the most nutritious corn seeds found in nature, with the seeds that provide the yields farmers need for their livelihoods.
