Multipliers successfully disseminate relevant knowledge on organic agriculture and agroecology to farmers, farmer associations, processors, marketers, and consumers. Multipliers play an important role in the collection, co-creation, and validation of knowledge, especially for traditional and indigenous knowledge. On the Multiplier Network they write in an informal or conversational style about their success stories and their multiplier stories.

Success stories inform us of knowledge products that made an impact in the transformation of agriculture and food systems.
Multiplier stories provide updates from field, inspiring news, exciting things to know about dissemination and exchange of experience on networking.
