Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the average output per hectare per smallholder farmer among an organization's clients.
  • Organizations should not calculate this metric using aggregate data across all smallholder farmers. Rather, organizations should use smallholder farmer-specific data as noted in the calculation. Organizations should report yield from the most recent harvest and provide details on the unit of measure reporting against (e.g., kilograms per hectare).
  • This metric could be valuable for organizations that sell inputs (fertilizer, irrigation equipment, etc.) to farmers that help improve yields.
  • Organizations interested in reporting the yields of famers that were suppliers should report against Average Supplier Agriculture Yield: Smallholder (PI1405).
