Those Who Sow

Family farming employs over 40% of the global working population and produces 80% of the global food supply. But what exactly is family farming and under which conditions can family farmers meet the challenges of tomorrow?

Forty young agronomists explored these questions throughout this 52 minute long documentary where they visited farmers from India, France, Cameroon, Ecuador and Canada.
