The Standard Hydro model helps farmers access knowledge about crop cultivation through the use of shade houses and hydroponic systems, while also learning how to implement marketing and business strategies.

By learning to improve yields, diversify and increase their incomes, farmers are then able to provide affordable food to their communities.
