Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture

Norman Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture

To continue Dr. Borlaug’s legacy by helping elevate small-holder farmers out of poverty and hunger through agricultural science.

The Borlaug Institute’s primary work is planning and executing agricultural development and food security programs in developing countries across the globe. Each program aims to improve aspects related to a country’s agriculture such as: livestock and crop production, new product development, access to markets, disease mitigation, climate change solutions, and the socioeconomic issues that affect agricultural economies. Funded by U.S. government agencies, foreign governments, multilateral institutions, and the private sector, the Institute partners with international and local organizations to help feed the world’s hungry through practices designed to continue long after each program has run its course.
