An Investment that Pays Off – CEI Agriculture Programs, led by Agronomist Arol Ilerand


Yams are a nutritious, high-income crop that have traditionally been too expensive for most farmers in the Jeannette area to produce.

CEI brought top quality stock to farmers in 2017, with the agreement that they’d give back a portion of their harvest so that more could continue to receive.

The day has come! Redistribution has doubled the number of farmers in the program, with no added investment from outside. Truly sustainable economic development!
