Small holder farmers can reap enormous benefits from agricultural cooperatives, like food security and poverty reduction for millions, according to the United Nations.

Farmers can negotiate lower prices for seeds, fertilizer and equipment, as well as secure land rights and better market opportunities.

In industrialized nations, some cooperatives or co-ops have become multi-million dollar businesses, which is why the Food and Agriculture Organization is encouraging African farmers to embrace this tool.

FAO's Eve Crowley spoke to Jocelyne Sambira about how these co-ops can be used to meet the world's future food needs.
