Access to GYGA Closed Beta Programme, for commercial licensing and sponsorship

We are looking to work with you throughout the product development of GYGA (e.g. via usability testing). We want to make sure that we develop the platform as users (you!) need it. This allows you to have a significant influence on the development of a first-of-its-kind international agri & food platform, GYGA!


The future of GYGA The future of GYGA

What is planned for GYGA in 2022?
  • Improvement of the GYGA website and map viewer
  • Updating yield gap analyses that have been performed in the period of 2011-2015
  • Depending on the funding received (via licensing or sponsorship), additional upgrades could include the effects of climate change, pests and diseases, crop management, regularly and expanded data with additional crops and countries.
  • Regular engagement with users to establish a stronger community and solid feedback loop for continuous improvement of the platform.
How to make GYGA sustainable?
  • GYGA has come a long way. GYGA started as a research project in 2011, and it has now transitioned into a first-of-its-kind database that provides high-quality and locally-relevant data on yield gaps and agronomic data used by thousands across sectors (companies, public, research institute-academia, NGOs).
  • In order to grow into a comprehensive and self-sustaining global database, a sustainable business and operational model needs to be identified to ensure its relevance to support you in achieving your goals. For this reason, we are exploring the revenue models of licensing and sponsorship models (see Table above).
  • Do you see the values in sustaining GYGA to benefit you and your organisation? We are looking for your contribution to determine the future development of GYGA. Be amongst the first 15 sponsors and annual licensees of GYGA and bring the platform to the next level!
