The Sustainable Cotton Challenge concluded at the end of 2019 with the experimentation of 6 technological and social innovations in the field. Among the solutions tested are an electric harvester for family farmers, an equipment that removes the linter from cotton seeds and a methodology to enhance the processes of organic participatory certification. At this time we are working on the structuring of an Open Innovation Fund, which will invest in new solutions for family farming and in the scaling up of proven innovations.
