Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the average output per hectare per smallholder farmer among an organization's suppliers.
  • Organizations should not calculate this metric using aggregate data across all suppliers. Rather, organizations should use smallholder farmer-specific data as noted in the calculation.
  • Organizations should be reporting yield from the most recent harvest.
  • This metric could be valuable for organizations that procure from smallholder farmers and provide support that benefit their yields (e.g., training and technical assistance).
  • Organizations interested in reporting the yields of famers that were clients of the organization should report against Average Client Agriculture Yield: Smallholder (PI9421).
