In collaboration with partner institutions, the Innovation Lab for Horticulture operates Regional Centers in Southeast Asia and in Central America.
The centers bring together key regional players to improve livelihoods of smallholder farmers and small businesses in the regions' developing countries, while building capacity at the host institutions.
Primary goals shared between each of the Regional Centers are:
- Researching, innovating and disseminating horticultural technologies
- Training farmers, horticultural stakeholders, extension agents and researchers
- Building capacity among local institutions
