> What are the 60 Decibels Benchmarks?
Over the years, we’ve conducted 361,000+ interviews in 70 countries, with customers of 900+ companies through 1,651 Lean Data projects across multiple sectors: Energy, Agriculture, Financial inclusion, Health, Education, and more. By asking the same questions across multiple projects, we’ve been able to develop benchmarks.

These benchmarks are the median performance of all our projects with farmers. Going a step further, quintiles give insight into the range of performance. We can turn this into actionable recommendations by identifying what practices, business models, and more, the highest-performing companies employ.
This is a benchmark of the performance of 93 organizations, across 19 countries, listening to over 18,000 farmers.
This includes companies and organizations providing farming inputs, training and advisory, agricultural technologies, credit, insurance, or market access solutions to farmers, and data from the past 3 years. We’ll keep this page updated quarterly so you can always find the latest sector trends here.
