If you look up at the sky while visiting the quiet villages of Misungwi District in Tanzania you might just see an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flying above you.
CIP contributes directly and indirectly through its country programs to the achievement of the MDGs
CIP is among a number of research organizations and universities from four continents partnering in an ambitious, multi-year project that aims to sequence the genome of a diploid relative of Orange-Fleshed Sweetpotato [OFSP].
On June 4, 2015, over 40 members of the Speed Breeders Community of Practice, who were holding their 14th Annual Meeting in Mukono, Uganda, visited the National Crop Resources Research Institute (NaCRRI). One of the main activities during the visit was a demonstration of testing farmers’ acceptance and preference of different varieties.
In spite of the proven positive economic and nutritional attributes of the orange-fleshed sweetpotato (OFSP) in sub-Saharan Africa, its uptake in industrial scale food production still remains low.
