The vision of the Sustainable Intensification Innovation Lab is supported and enhanced by the work of three consortia:
- The Appropriate Scale Mechanization Consortium (ASMC) operates under the leadership of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and aims to intensify smallholder farmers' cropping systems and on-farm operations through mechanization in a sustainable manner.
- The Digital Tools, Geospatial and Farming Systems Consortium (DGFSC), led by Kansas State University, works to link farming systems with geospatial approaches.
- The Policy Research Consortium, led by Rutgers University, is a multi-institutional consortium of researchers based in the U.S. and Feed the Future countries to conduct a series of impact studies related to agricultural and food security policy.
- The Sustainable Opportunities for Improving Livelihoods with Soils (SOILS) Consortium, in conjunction with the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), is working to improve the health and fertility of soils as the foundation for nutritious food production and resilient and sustainable livelihoods.
