WHAT WE DO
We are seeking to boost the productivity of important legume crops in Africa via the application of marker-assisted breeding. Our strategy is to support scientists in the target countries by providing research grants, laboratories, screen houses, advice, training, equipment and supplies to enable them to carry out molecular breeding work for crop improvement.
We are also exploring the potential resilience to climate change of underutilised legume species in India and in African countries.
Funding is restricted to public sector agricultural research organisations and higher education institutions in target countries.
