- Africa research in sustainable intensification for the next generation
- Control of Bacterial Wilt Disease in banana
- LegumeCHOICE, exploiting potential of multi- purpose legumes for crop-livestock systems in east and Central Africa.
- Transformation of Agronomic research and delivery services for smallholder farmers in maize-based systems of Sub-Saharan Africa with a focus on Ethiopia, Nigeria, and Tanzania (TAMASA)
In Ethiopia, we are working on many areas to improve the smallholder farmers’ productivity and livelihoods. One of such is the control of bacteria wilt disease to enable small holder farmers to have access to and utilize high quality ‘enset’(false banana) varieties resistant to the disease for improved and sustainable production and food security. Other areas of our work are exploiting the potential of multi-purpose legumes towards improved livelihoods and a better environment for crop-livestock systems in East and Central Africa and increasing small holder maize yields with associated benefits through the TAMASA project.
