There is one thing everyone using social media can do. It is sharing development content using sustainable development goal or target hashtags.

This plantwise initiative was established to help the world's poorest farmers deal with pests and diseases and other plant health problems.

In a plant clinic local extension workers and plant doctors provide poor smallholder farmers with advice on demand, tailored to the farmer's individual need.

Further details: Plant clinics (Plantwise).
