Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to Announce $120 Million in New Agriculture Grants: Bill Gates to Call for United Action to Support World's Poorest Farmers

Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, on Thursday, October 15, 2009 will urge governments, donors, researchers, farmer groups, environmentalists, and others to set aside old divisions and join forces to help millions of the world's poorest farming families boost their yields and incomes so they can lift themselves out of hunger and poverty. Gates will say the effort must be guided by the farmers themselves, adapted to local circumstances, and sustainable for the economy and the environment.
