Since then, we've seen these sustainable practices making a real difference. Bunding has been a great success and we’ve taught farmers how to apply better-targeted chemical sprays at the right time. Which means healthier fruit, safer farms and an 80% saving on chemical costs for the farmer.
We also introduced better working conditions on the farms by building toilets and arranging waste chemical container collections. This has made it easier for farmers to find pickers who want to stick around.
The good news is that farmers who grew their mangoes in this way saw 48% higher yields compared to farmers who didn't. But this is just the beginning. We plan to take our sustainable mango program even further by investing in farmer leadership training. This will encourage farmers to come up with great ideas of their own to make mangoes more sustainable, and improve other things that really matter to them.
